External Data Source's Work Around

Your post

Server #1 (ip xxx.xxx.xxx.8) Windows 2003 sp2 FM Server 9 and Server #2 (ip xxx.xxx.xxx.7) Windows 2003 sp2 FM Server 10. I need a workaround for external file reference. I lost server #1 so I moved all the current files to server #2. I could not open my files because the main program external file references was pointing to server #1. Example: fmnet:/xxx.xxx.xxx.8/program. I wanted to write a script to test what server ip it is on and then change the fmnet:/xxx.xxx.xxx.7/program for each one. Is this possible without manually doing it thru external data sources window?
