     This little bit of code and table will help you manage tables with linked/split databases. Currently it only handles MDB or Access databases, but it would be a simple task to set it up to handle other types of tables. Basically, with this little code, you can Import a table from another DB, Export and then LINK to data from Current db to another db, or Link to external data in another Db all automatically just by setting the tables in the MOVETABLES table. I'm also going to add some features that will allow you to "upgrade" an external data table with a new Structure for those of you who make a new front end and also change the structure of the back end but you don't have access to the production version of the back end for whatever reason. Should be up sometime today.

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
