You have to ask the database application author why he uses hardcoded W: drive letter.

Will your db performance match your db growth?

In Percona’s white paper “Performance at Scale: Keeping Your Database on Its Toes,” we take a high-level approach to what you need to think about when planning for database scalability.

This is standard situation in many companies. Some people do have access to certain files/drives others don't... Drives are mapped automatically during the login.

You may try to map the W: drive yourself if you know the network name and path. Or better, you may ask your network administrator to do it for you. It should be one minute task for him.

Not necessarily; if the paths is change then that could be modified. You could rebuild your system and make the system drive 'm' again.

This is a split Access so from M you are accessing the front End and the data files (Back End) is on W...the easiest way to work this is to make a map to W...just go the path described by on the 1st screen shot and make a network drive....

Then probably you have a different error like permission issue....
TAKE special note that the path is a path so the .accdb is not included....I cannot see very clear from the screenshot but it is :
\\TheServerName (? ... ADMINISTRATIVE )\...\Central Recors Room\
don't try to set it by hand...browse to find it...if it maps...everything OK...if not you don't have access.....or your server has stuck and needs a reboot...

Could you show in e.g. Windows Explorer how did you map the W: drive and that the file is available?
Did you ask the application author?

Great!

So it seems the problem is resolved and you could close the question. At least three answers were pointing you to the W: drive mapping. :-)
