Default Use VBA to get data from Access (Share folder)

I have an Access db and need to get some tables from another Access db in a shared folder. I want to get the tables via VBA. I have the IP address of the location of the file. I was informed to use UNC (UNC ?).

UNC is like what I mentioned in my first reply:


You mentioned, in your earlier post that it was on a shared drive - which would mean it's mapped to X: or something like that.

connect to the X: not to or whatever it is.

If, for example, the file you have was located at
(that's the www.wrox.com IP)
But isn't what you want to connect to.
You don't even want to connect to

You need to be connected to the network that those are on.

so you'd actually be connecting to something like:
\\WroxWebServer\InetPub\wwwroot\dynamic\YourFile.m db



As I mentioned in my last post:

You need to know where the file is on your network - NOT the Internet
