Default dataconnection path

Avatar

Hi Everyone



I'm having a problem with my dataconnection to an Access database. I used the wizard to create a connection and my drop-down list works fine. The problem is if I move the PDF and database to another location or folder, the connection path is no longer valid.



I remember in Visual Basic it was possible to have the data connection path default to the current folder/directory. I'm sure it's possible in JavaScript but I can't find anything to get me started.



I'm using LifeCycle in Acrobat 9 Pro. Any help would be greatly appreciated.



Thanks

This is all based on the ODBC driver settings. In there is a path to the Access db and if you move it then the DSN cannot find the database.

Thanks Paul



I know what the problem is I just don't know if there's a method in JavaScript to make the path default to the current location.



Thanks
