ReConnecting Front and Backend

P: n/a
Thank you for any and all assistance. I'm trying to build a small application.
On my computer the front and backend work great, until I change the name of the
original files to something else, or install it on a computer without MS
Access. Then the link is broken...HELP!

Is there a way to keep the link there, or relink the two databases?

From the front end select Tools, Database Utilities, Linked Table
Manager. Hit "Select All" and check the "Allways Prompt for New
Location" checkbox and click <OK>, locate your BackEnd .mdb file and
you should be good to go...

If you don't have Access installed on the target PC you'll need the
Developer edition of Access to get a license for the Runtime files
that you can then deliver to the client royalty-free.

I have the developer edition of 97, 2000 and 2002, but the only one I can get
to work is the 97. Is there another file, other than the Access and Workstation
file runtimes I need to connect the front and backends?
