So every time i attempt to open my database in Microsoft access

i did not create this database and lack experience with this program.

it attempts to open the wrong path. and yes the path its trying to access i not the right one. So how do i manually change the path?

or how do i edit the database to work on the new server/domain

Its trying to open the it via a drive labeled Y: but its located on a server \\test



After switching a PC to the new domain. And cloning the old domain/server to the new one


 this error started to occur.



i have even gone as far as to copy and paste the server to my own computer and i still get the same error when attempting to access the database

Have you tried mapping or remapping the Y: drive to point to the new server location on \\test? If you open Windows Explorer, can you enter the path to the database on \\test and reach it?
