change attached file location

I have attached invoices for clients in a folder and I want to move the folder. Is there a way to change the folder location in ACT without reattaching each file????????????

Re: change attached file location

there once was an add on utility that would cahnge the attachment path for attachment paths. I can check to see if I can find it and the cost of the utility. If you're interested send me a private message.

Re: change attached file location

Thanks Roy;

I thought I saw one also, a long time ago. I couldn't locate it so I figured it out.

 

It is sort of simple. I have done it a couple of times before when I moved them to another drive, but this time I needed to change folder names. Bottom line, if the path is the same # of characters one can use a hex editor like UltraEdit to change the paths in the .blb file. I just had to abbreviate the path to match the old length. I might try to do an insert, but it is working OK now.

 

thx.
