I am doing a cleaning up project for some of my data. This requires a data structure.
That means I will have to replace the workspace path in the MXDS.
The old structure of the data will be something as follows:
With the new structure being:
I believe it possible to use map document or layer find and replace workspacepath. If I do this though will this effect layer settings such as definition queries?
I have read in the scripting for ArcGIS ESRI book the following:
When workspaces in a map document are modified, there are a few things that MAY NOT WORK joins and relates associated with raster layers. Definition Queries MAY no longer work because of slightly different SQL syntax (then gives an example of FILE GEODATABASES to Personal Ones).
If I am just making straight change for the location of the data like a shapefile in a new location or file geodatabase in a new location, will this effect definition queries that might be stored in maps?
