File Paths

P: 1
I have changed the file paths in linked tables and now the queries are all empty. Should I be doing something else?

I have had problems with Access not following the new updated location as well. I'm assuming that you have your tables in a backend database with all your form, queries, reports, etc. in the front end. You need to delete the linked tables from the front end database (this just deletes the link, not the data or tables in the backend). Then, re-import the tables as linked tables from the new database location. This is basically the manual way of updating the linked file location. I'm not sure why the automated way doesn't work, but I have never been able to get it to work in Access 2010 (the only version that I have tried to do this in).

Your question is barely adequate not to be deleted (possibly I should have), but if you're doing this with code (The question doesn't even include that level of detail) then you will need to call the .RefreshLink method of the TableDef object after the .Connect property has been changed.
