Changing a Data source for all layers/feature classes

Question asked by Mitil on Mar 7, 2017

I have a single data source attached to an ArcMap .mxd file.  It contains 6 layers/feature classes.  I want to be able to change the data source location easily for all layers in one step.  I can select each layer and pick the new data source but I'm looking for a way to do them all at once.  I tried right clicking on the Data source but can not find an option to point to a new location.  Reason is I have 100's of mxd files to update and would like to do this quickly.  


I'm currently trying to just see if I can change the data source from one File based GeoDatabase to another (same name) in a new location/path.


I am also looking at connecting to an SDE server rather than the File based GeoDatabase we currently connect to that would contain the same layer names.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
