Hi guys ,

 

i am not sure if this is in the right section to post , this , i m struggling with the new set up here , But maybe some one can give me some help.

 

So i am working as map technian and i am in charge of my departments maps. My company has a base in a couple of different countires and we have been sharing some folders on the same server.

 

Recently the other country moved one folder to a new server without telling my country. So all of the links for these maps are broken . There is a lot. i have been trying to find some information about updating the links , i know that you can manually go into the MXD and then repair the link . But i have over 2000 , in lots of differet sub folders.

 

my data people here say that becuase its a server change , then its not possible to use a script to change the links automatically is this correct .

 

i was just looking for anyone who might have some insight in to this , thanks a lot
