    I intend to place the back end file in a shared folder on our network. When
    I use the database splitter wizard I also save the front end file there.

    Will the links still be Ok if the user moves the front end file into one of
    their own folders which are not shared.

    It depends on how the link is made.

    If the front-end was linked to the back-end using mapped drives, the user
    must have the same mapped drive. If he/she does have the same mapped drive,
    there should be no problem.

    If the front-end was linked to the back-end using a UNC (\\server\share),
    there should be no problem.

    Word of caution.......


    If you are doing importing / exporting of files, AND you coded those
    operations looking at the local drive or the C: drive then you
    will/may have problems.
