    Hi Experts,

    I had an Access database running on my old computer (Windows 98) all working
    fine, recently i had purchase a new computer (Windows XP) and i try to move
    the old access db to the new computer that all went smoothly too. When i
    tried to run the database the messageboxes appear said
    "C:\ClientsDB\Info\database.mdb" was not found but the database in my new pc
    is not even in those path it is under my document and settings folder. The
    reason i put it there because i only want myself to have access to that
    database.

    My question is how can I tells the database to reference the new one say
    from "C:\ClientsDB\Info\database.mdb" to "C:\Documents and
    Settings\Jing\ClientDB\Info\database.mdb"

    Can anyone point me to the right direction.

    Thanks in advance.

    Take a look at the Linked Table Manager.

    You don't mention what version of Access you're using. Depending on version,
    the Linked Table Manager will be either under Tools | Add-ins, or Tools |
    Database Utilities

    Hi,

    Thanks for a quick reply, with the new pc i am currently using Access 2003
    and the old one i am using Access XP. It run alright in Windows XP.

    How can i see Tools | Add-ins, or Tools | Database Utilities because there
    is no such menu. I think this is a compile access database that why i can
    see the standard access office menu but why with an extension of .mdb

    Any idea.

    Thanks

    Perhaps the normal menus have been replaced. Try holding down the shift key
    while opening the database: that should override the startup options.

    Hi Douglas,

    Wow, i learned something new today - didn't know that i could hold down the
    shift key while open the database. From here i should manage to find my way
    through.

    Many many thanks
