Tell access to read different backend table

So for I have successfully:

1.) Split my database
2.) Moved the backend tables (saved as .be) to another laptop where it will be housed
3.) Accessed the fold from the laptop where the front end database will be.

Now I am stuck.

How do I tell the front end database to connect to those tables on the backend? It is still connected to the tables it defaulted to after the split.

Also, I am not sure if I am properly saving the front end as a "front end"... maybe I'll post another question on that.

Thanks!

You can use the Linked Table Manager to point to the correct back-end location.

This is under Database Tools....Depending on your version of Access:

When you open linked table manager, select the table(s) that you want to re-link, or all of them, and check the "Always Prompt for New Location" box.  This will allow you to enter a different path for the tables you are relinking.
