I have an access database that I splitted a few months ago. As I need to move the Back End to a new computer with different organization, I need to change the address of the back end folder. How do I do it?
Is there a manner to unsplit the database?

No need to do this nor would it be recommended.

Sure it is possible. Just reverse the process of splitting.

FWIW: I split every database from the start. I will only would on a database that is split.  

I have written some article on the subject.
