Replacing the front end of a split database

P: n/a
I split a database. Back end (be) is stored on a server. Front end
(fe) is stored locally on one workstation.

I will need to make changes to the forms and reports on the fe on a
different workstation. What are the steps for copying over the
updated fe to the workstation where the live database fe is running?

Thanks!

1. Copy the updated FE to one of the workstations that is connected to the
server.
2. Relink the tables.
3. Done!

Just a note ---

If you haven't moved the BE, you don't even need to relink the tables!
