    Unanswered: linked tables from w:\ to \\servername

    How could I link table with this path :
    \\servername\diskname\path\database.mdb

    ...
    instead of w:\path\database.mdb.


    thx

    Or is there another way to go around if user has t:\ instead of w:\ for network disk...

    You should be able to simply use the path you described. Use the linked table manager and check the tables whose path you want to change as well as the "Always prompt for new location" checkbox. When you press OK and it prompts for the directory, DON'T use your mapped drive, but rather go through network neighborhood -> entire network ->microsoft windows network -> servername -> drive -> path -> database.mdb
