Hi there,

I wonder how I can find out the exact path of a database that is loaded into MultiTerm 2007? When I open "Termbase catalogue", I can only see a part of the path but not the whole path., e.g. C:\Documents\user\E...\mxw_10.mdb.
Do you know where I can find out this?

Thank you!
Holger

Windows explorer? Oct 1, 2010

Hi, I use Multiterm 2009, there you can browse the path of the databases. Otherwise, when I need a path I search in Windows explorer.
This maybe too obvious, but I hope it helps...

Why do you need it? Let me draw your attention onto the fact that you cannot simply copy the .MDB file found in that path to another computer and open it with Multiterm there. This is not going to work in MT 2007. The only way to transfer termbases in MT 2007 is either to detach/attach them or to do an export and recreate the termbase on the other PC.

This is due to the fact that MT 2007 internally assigns names ot these termbase files and keeps the association between these "internal file names" and "your termbase name" in an Access database.

Walter

P.S.: In MT 2009, this works completely differently and there Laura's suggestions works fine because the physical file has the same name as the termbase and is also located in the folder you chose.
