I am trying to use a server on a shared folder with my access data and I can’t get the access file to open on the work station. It keeps looking for the c drive but my work station is map drive letter Z how I change the path so it can open up on the work station. Keep in mind that I created a short cut to my server. I can run the program on the server ok. I am not an access person I am clueless.

Are you referring to linked tables, perhaps? So your Access database has tables linked to the C drive, but you now need to relink those tables to a file on the Z drive?

If so, you can use the Linked Table Manager for this. You didn't mention your version of Access, but in general this is same regardless:

Be sure your Z drive is properly linked before you do this, and remember to check the "Always Prompt for New Location" box when doing this.
