MDE Files/Need Help with path problem

MDE Files/Need Help with path problem in MS Access Interactive topic (part of our Microsoft Access group).

Quick Search: problem   MDE Files/   MDE Files/ path  

Hey everyone,
New hereBig Grin!
I will post elsewhere not sure if this is all IT or both IT and access
at my job IT manager moved all shared files to a different location example - instead of Ment01 he moved it to Ment04. While doing this there is a folder in there that has a large database and now I cannot log into it keeps giving me an error message saying the path is invalid or typo.

We tried copying it to desktop, and even shortcut does not work????

When moving MDE files are you suppose to make a replica of the orig before moving it over or is this more an IT issue with permission and IP addresses?
I am the only one that has all requirements to modify, enter ect, everone else is read only

Please if anyone out there let has any suggestions or ideas let me know

Just adding...

Sounds like the path has changed so you need to open up the MDB source version and correct the path. If you don't have the MDB, then it's more difficult because the Access VBA code has been compiled. You really should get the MDB.

Here's a link to some more info on Protected Access Database files and an unlock utility:

Or, you can try duplicating the path info in the new environment.
