TableLinker Lite

TableLinker Lite for Microsoft Access is an Access form that you can import into your Access application front-end to provide simple linked table management capabilities. TableLinker Lite allows you to easily link your front-end Access database to all of the tables in an Access back-end database. Additionally, TableLinker Lite will let you specify alternate back-ends to link to in case the first back-end database is not found. This allows you to automatically relink tables when moving your front-end database from a production environment to a test or development environment, and back again.

It's easy to add into your new or existing applications. Just import the TableLinker Lite form into your applicaiton front end, and open it to begin adding your backend file locatons. Open the form hidden during application startup to relink your tables.
