Default re-link tables in a .mde when .mdb does not exist

Does anyone know a way to re-link the tables in a .mde database to a new location?
The server where the table were in, is no longer used
and the .mdb file does not exist any more.
or Can you strip out the objects from a .mde into a new .mdb?

If you create a new mdb file and then select Insert > Table > Import, you can pull in tables and queries, but nothing else. You can't use the linked table manager from within the mde. You can link new tables from within the mde.

So what you should do is to open the mde, hit f11 to open the database window if it isn't open, then select Insert > Table > Link Table, and link the tables from their new location. And delete the old tables. Use a COPY of the mde to try this with.
