accdb shrinking

Finally get an accdb converted to 64 bit and noticed the file shrunk by 1/2. All good but it appears it saved some collection strings in places not available to me. Now the accdb can not be moved to another machine. I can move the file to another machine and change the source connection strings but the app fails with connection error. scanning the accdb shows instances of the old connection string. How can I recover?

Go to menu External data, open Manage link tables, and relink your tables.
