exporting (or transporting) an adp

P: n/a
Hello again.

I would like to export an ADP file to another PC
on another network and, once there, change the
connection settings. BUT, Access does NOT allow
me to even open the file, arguing the connection
cannot be established. Of course it can't. THAT is
exactly what I want to do: CHANGE THE CONNECTION
PARAMETERS. But I can't since Access won't even
let me open the damned file.

Any suggestions? Any clever hack?

PS: My purpose is to UNDERSTAND the functionality
proposed by the adp and NOT to continue developement
under Access. But I have to transport the file in order
to do so.

Thanks in advance

Hint: why does this problem not occur with the NorthwindCS.adp sample
application that Microsoft ships with Access? Surely it doesn't have
the connection set properly either...

Inspect its startup code. Perhaps you'll want to adopt some of it for
your own app.
