    Hi,

    I am writing a small app which distributes an Access database around various
    computers on a network for one of my clients.

    The app is a standard Front End / Back End Access setup. One of the
    computers that the Front End is installed on also stores the Back End.

    My question is this: if I re-link the tables on this one machine, using the
    full UNC path, does this slow the application down compared to if I re-link
    it using a C:\ drive address.

    For example (the computer name is Till)
    \\Till\MyProgram\xxx_BE.mdb

    or

    C:\MyProgram\xxx_BE.mdb

    Any help would be very much appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Jim
