    Unanswered: Link A2K2 FE to A2K2 DB w/out specifying Drive

    Is there a way to link an A2K2 Frontend to an A2K2 Backend DB (Jet tables without a drive specified. Better still, parameterize it... At minimum, as long as the db Backend was in the proper folders on the same drive as the FE.
    Anyone done this?
    thanks,

    Have some preferences

    I have a 1 row table called prefs in my database front end. It contains the path to the B/e database

    When the fe starts it refreshes the link of the first table to the backend.

    If an error occurs a message box appears and asks the user to find the be database.

    I understand. Just one question, my BE has over 200 tables. Slow process everytime a user opens the FE. You said "the fe starts it refreshes the link of the first table to the backend"... what do you mean by "first table"? why only the "first table"? Does that auto re-link all other tables?
    thanks,
