Try this

Public Function FixTableLink()
 
Dim db As Database
Dim strPath As String
Dim strConnect As String
 
strPath = "NewPathName"

 
strConnect = ";DATABASE=" & strPath & "; password:mypassword"
 
Set db = CurrentDb
 
For Each tbl In db.TableDefs
 
    If Nz(DLookup("Type", "MSysObjects", "Name = '" & tbl.name & "'"), 0) = 6 And tbl.Connect <> strConnect Then
         
        tbl.Connect = strConnect
        tbl.RefreshLink
         
    End If
 
Next tbl
 
End Function
