    Arrow Unanswered: how to change a path name

    Does anyone know how to change the name of the path? For example, I started saving my db on this computer, then I ended up saving it to a thumb drive for most of the creating of the db. Now it is trying to open from the thumb drive file,"F:", even when I don't have it plugged in and am using the hard drive on this computer. I need it to come from the computer's hard drive, "S:".
    Does anyone know how to change this.................please help!!

    Thanks for any advice in advance!

    Are you opening the file by selecting it from the recent files list? If so, use File/Open instead and navigate to the proper location.

    If you have linked tables that are looking for the thumb drive - that is a different situation. Unless there is a lot of tables, the simplest thing to do is to remove the linked tables and then relink to the correct ones.
    have fun!
