Access 2013 DB Move

Last Modified: 2015-12-02
Having issue opening database after copying database files and moving to new server.  Upon attempting to open database, error message indicates file cannot be found with old data location in the error.  For example:
Old Data location: \\old_server_name\shared_folder_name\123.mdb
New Data location: \\new_server_name\shared_folder_name\123.mdb

Tried to open two ways:
1. Browsed to new server and location (\\new_server_name\shared_folder_name\123.mdb) and attempting to open file, received error message that old server ( \\old_server_name\shared_folder_name\123.mdb) is not available.
2. Opened Access and browsed to location on new server and received the same message relating to old server location.
