I have an ASP.net site that sits on an IIS Server accessing an Access database somewhere else on the network. This database is periodically moved to a different location and I want to know the best way for a USER to change the location so that all my VB.net code automatically picks up this location. On a LAN what is the best way to do this? I see the Access Data Source control. Is this an option? If I put it in the web config area then this has to be changed in code.
