Back end database has moved how to locate it and relink

I think I can relink the Back end database but here's my problem. My program calls up a Main Menu where the user can select what they want to do. However if the Database has been moved to another folder or Drive the main menu form gives an error message "Could not find C:\myfolder\mybackend_be.accdb because that's where the original back end database was. I want to be able to search the other drives or folders to find where the back end is located. I think I've got that taken care of but I can't run the code because of the message about not finding the back end.
Do I need to start a different form or what do you suggest.

The reason I want to do this is because I have some clients that want to install the program on a different drive than drive C: The main new drive has been D: as lots of new computers come with a small SSD drive for C and a large regular drive on D:
Thanks again for all your help.

Ok, guess what I found what was going on. First my main menu had a table as the Record Source so when I removed that everything work like I wanted it to. That thought just came to me while I was looking at some other things.
Thanks for the help in the past.
