I have a MSaccess database in a folder called "database" on the server. The workstations have mapped network drives to the database. These mapped drives have to have a specific drive letter assigned to them or we can't access the database tables. The person that originally set this up is telling me that's the only way it will work.
I have set up a couple of the workstations with Ubuntu and Crossover Office. I can run MSaccess just fine on the Ubuntu machines. In configuring crossover office I see that it assigns drive letters, but I can't choose which letter to use.
Is this possible and if so how do I do it?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Its definetly possible however via other means
from memory Crossover Office (now Crossover Linux) only allows you to assign a drive to a local folder
however you are able to map Network path to a folder in ubuntu
you may then set
h: drive to /media/windowsshare in Crossover Linux
