STARS has a user-friendly re-linking program that will automatically detect if either of STARS data file or dictionary file has been moved and assist the user in rethinking to their data.
You will find an example of a typical STARS network environment on the following support page.
It is recommended that the dictionary data file remains local to STARS's front-end graphical user interface. Networking the dictionary file may cause the program to slow when a spell checking operations is requested.
When loading STARS automatically reconnects to its data, where this data has been moved or connection has been lost STARS will display a warning notice explaining what will happen next.
Next STARS opens the user friendly reconnection utility, in the example below it can be seen that neither the data file or the dictionary file can be located. STARS also indicates the location of where it last successfully found these files.
Semi-automatic re-linking form loads indicating STARS_be.accdb file not found
Select STARS_be.accdb (highlighted black) and click on the 'Locate Data File...' button
Use the file manager to locate the STARS_be.accdb file
Check the Data Reconnection Utility confirms STARS_be.accdb file has be found, indicated by 'Yes' in the right side column.
