Hi,

I am looking to rename 6 relational database and was wondering what method is the best method to avoid the sub-script from directing to the wrong database. Does anybody have any ideas on performing this? Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

2 ways to deal with this. One way is to go though each file and relink all scripts and relationships. The other is to use the Developer tool to rename/relink the files.

I read this someplace on the forum, but can't find it now. I've experimented with this technique using a smaller relational database, and it seemed to work.

1. Open the database

2. Change all of the files to single-user

3. Close the database

4. Rename the files

5. Re-open the database

6. Use it a little, making sure that you enter each and every file at least once. This give it a chance to notice the new names as they pertain to relationships.

7. Close the database

8. Re-open the database

9. Change all of the files to multi-user

10. Close it

11. Re-open it

12. Now you can set the files to single or multi-user - whichever you need it to be - and everything should be OK

I OFFER NO GUARANTEES
