Hi EE
I have the following code to re-link data
Dim strPathBE As String
Dim tdf As TableDef

With FileDialog(msoFileDialogFilePicker)
    If Not .Show Then Exit Sub
    strPathBE = .SelectedItems(1)
End With
With CurrentDb
    For Each tdf In .TableDefs
        If tdf.Attributes And dbSystemObject Then
        ElseIf Len(tdf.Connect) = 0 Then
        ElseIf Left(tdf.Connect, 1) <> ";" Then
        Else
            tdf.Connect = ";DATABASE=" & strPathBE
            tdf.RefreshLink
        End If
    Next tdf
    Me!txtLoc = strPathBE
   
End With

It works if data has no password. I assume it needs some extra code to handle password.
something at the end of this line perhaps
 tdf.Connect = ";DATABASE=" & strPathBE (Password)

Any help appreciated
