I have MS access 2002 replica database file named “Parts” located  on a server folder .
I need to find where is master design file of this replica database.
Problem is that  there are a number of  databases and there is no  good documentation where they are located.
I need help with finding where is design master of this particular replica “Parts” database.
Is there way to find path where is design master or what the name it has.

Any idea?

Hi Taras

Open the replica and display the Immediate window (ctrl-G)

Type:
?CurrentDb.DesignMasterID <enter>
A GUID will be displayed.

Type:
DoCmd.OpenTable "MSysReplicas" <enter>
The replicas table will open.

Scroll across to the ReplicaID column and find your DesignMasterID GUID (expand the column width if necessary.

The MachineName/Pathname and/or UNCPathname fields in the same row will point you to the design master.
