Relink Tables

Relink Tables when your Back-End has Moved


 S  M  L  XL  FS  Join Now

In this video, I will show you how to relink the tables to your back-end file in Microsoft Access, should the location of that table move. We'll see how to use the Linked Table Manager to relink the file.

Nicholas from Baltimore, Maryland (a Platinum Member) asks: I recently installed a new file server. This involved moving everything around, including my Access back-end database file. I split my database like you instructed in your video. Now, I'm getting a run-time error 3024 with Access saying it can't find the file. How do I fix this?

Members

Members will learn how to relink the back-end file automatically using a little VBA. This way, your users and you don't ever need to use the Linked Table Manager. We will prompt them and ask for the new location by having them browse to it. 

Silver Members and up get access to view Extended Cut videos, when available. Gold Members can download the database template from class plus get access to the Code Vault.

Hi Richard,

I made this to my dBase but before I get the homemade error msgbox I get twice an Access warning "Could not find file 'C:\blalbla_be.accdb' with an OK and Help button.
After hitting twice the OK button I get the home-made msgbox and select the _be.accdb and it works great. Read More...

I'm not sure which warnings you're talking about. Can you post a screen shot?
