Hi all,
I've seen posts along these lines before, but nothing is working for me. I've recently had to relocate my data files onto a new drive (was W now D). I would have thought that simply editing the workspace file in notepad and changing the relevant drive addresses for the tables and all related bits n pieces would be all I need to do to reconcile the workspace and open in MI. However, it's still asking me to locate the tables.

Any clues?

Hi

 

That would be the typical way to make these adjustment, yes.

 

Is the file structure identical on the new drive or have the files been put into a sub folder?

 

One thing to try out, is to add a Print statement with the path of the table before the Open Table statement.

 

Print "C:\MapInfo\Pro\v23.0\TileServer\PreciselyBronze.TAB"

Open Table "C:\MapInfo\Pro\v23.0\TileServer\PreciselyBronze.TAB" As PreciselyBronze Interactive

Print "Protected Air Navigation"

Open Table "Protected Air Navigation" As Protected_Air_Navigation Interactive

 

This shows what Pro is looking for, and also ensures that you are in fact opening the workspace you have edited.

Personally, I have edited a workspace and didn’t see the change – it took a while to see that I wasn’t opening the same workspace that I was editing.

 

Cheers

Peter

Hi Craig,

Perhaps some of the tab-files itself links to an associated xml-file where you have to change also the path.

Normally then the wor will work

Best whishes

Hi Craig

One more possibility, but only if someone (like me) does this.
I have large orthophotos and their tab files on one drive. Sometimes I open them into MIPro and save as a new tab file on a different drive.
Essentially it becomes a shortcut with a hard-coded path inside it. In fact I add "shortcut" to the filename.
This is so I can see at a glance - in File Explorer - what extra images may have been used for a particular mapping job.
