Replicated Application MS Access database - how to undo

P: n/a
A client has a split database. However, the frontend is replicated.
Since both frontend databases(replicated + DM)are both on same network
drive, we would like to remove the replication of the front end. Can we
just delete one of them and point the shortcut to open the other?

BTW, front ends should never ever be replicated in the first place
because Jet Replication works reliably in the long run only with
pure Jet objects (tables and queries). Replicating front ends
(forms/reports/macros/modules) eventually leads to odd behavior and
corruption, and can even result in the loss of the entire VBA
project.
