    You can use relative path for Access DB, Excel DB, Text DB etc - such as just ".\shipping.accdb" instead of "C:\Users\<username>\Desktop\Temp\shipping.accdb".

     

    .\ means current folder - the same folder as BarTender document (*.btw) file.

    ..\ means parent folder

    .\db\ means db folder within the same folder as the BarTender document.

     

    You must save the BarTender document file before using relative path.

    Relative path is applicable to linked pictures too.

     

    Deep explanation is shown in here.

    Thank you! That really helps! But I can't figure out where I would type in this path.

    Depends on your version -

    In 2016, File > Database Connection Setup > [Configure Connection] button.

    10.1 or Before, File > Database Connection Setup > Options > Setup > Data source.
