I'm trying to put the act database files onto our local file server which has a RAID hard disk arrangement so 1-2 users can access it from thier locally installed ACT8 apps.
I'm trying (and failing) to modify the .PAD file to point to the new location so they can load the database across our 100M network :
<?xml version="1.0" standalone="no"?>
<!--This file represents a Pointer to an Act Database or [PAD]-->
<ACTDatabase name="COMPANY" host="SERVER1" location="sales_marketing\ACT-Database\COMPANY.ADF" type="Sql" />
I have also tried using the server's IP address instead of SERVER1 as the host but it makes no difference as whenever I try and open the PAD file the system complains that it cannot find the files ("the database COMPANY could not be accessed.....")
Everything is located from this poit onwards on the server
What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for taking the time to respond, I appreciate it.
Unfortunately life is not that simple!
We have a Redhat Linux Server running Samba which is acting as a windows domain controller, File server and provides RAID reduncdancy
I would like to put the database files on the server so at least our sales guy can use it safe in the knowledge that it's backed up.
I can't get the system to locate the file on the server though
