I have developed a small application which I have distributed with Access runtime 2003. I thought I had split the database and installed the Front end to:
<PROGRAM_FILES>\Eureka Doc Sys\MQX Volunteer Management System

and the back end to:
<COMMON_APP_DATA>\MQXVolunteerData\MQXVolunteer_be.mdb

The application is working fine, just needs some small changes. So, I am trying to get a copy of the MQXVolunteer_be.mdb to make the changes.

We have spent several hours searching her computer for MQXVolunteer_be.mdb
and I cannot locate the MQXVolunteer_be.mdb which holds any data.
There are several instances of MQXVolunteer_be.mdb on her computer but none contain her data.

Can you direct me in how to locate the MQXVolunteer_be.mdb
file? We have done extensive searching for the file with no luck. It is well hidden from me! Of course, my client is long distance...

Thanks,

ColeS

Hi Mary,

How are you adding the backend database to the installer? Is it as an additional file rather than when it asks for frontend and backend?

To find something in the common app data location, you'll first need to know where that is on the operating system you are working with is.

For Windows XP and below the location is:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data

For Windows Vista and above it is:
C:\ProgramData

To find them you will need to be sure to have the option in the system's Folder Options to show hidden folders.
