10.2 and OLE DB connection

I was trying to import an Access 2007 (accdb) file into ArcCatalog v. 10.2.  I am using Windows 7.
I have done this before and everything worked fine with v 10.0.
Instead of entering the complete pathway for the Access file now you only need to enter the database name and the rest of the pathway automatically fills in.

Problem:  The name of the documents folder in Windows 7 is 'My Documents' not 'Documents' as it used to be.
No matter how I tried - entering full pathway, changing 'My Documents' to 'Documents' (in both the pathway and actually changing   the folder name) it would not connect. 
Very frustrating.
