Moving Parameter Queries

I have created a Parameter Query that imports transactions from an Access Database on my 'C' drive to "work out the bugs".
It works just fine, however when I move it (as well as the related dqy file and the database) to a shared network drive so that others can access it, it sends back an ODBC driver error message.  I am at a loss as to how to remedy this situation without recreating the query (very time consuming) at the new location

Has anyone run into this before

Any efforts will be much appreciated

Sounds like a confused link - am assuming your query pulls 
from a linked table or query in the "home" data base.  If 
this is the case, you might try reconnecting the linked 
object from its networked location.
Another possibility (if it applies in your case) is a 
confused pathname in a macro.  IF your data is being 
pulled by macro action, check the pathname in the details 
of the macro step that does the import.  It must point to 
the network location rather than the original C: drive 
If I've misunderstood the problem, maybe more detail would

Append query bloat
I have an access database where I use an append query quite often. I will use this same query over and over by changing the table I'm appending from, then I save the query. During the save process, the database bloats from ~50KB to ~150KB. Our company recently upgraded to 2007 and that is when I noticed the problem. Is there a way to stop this from happening? I can manage it by compacting and repairing after each save, but recently I added 4 tables in one day, so this was a pain. Thanks Don't even worry about it.

Select Query to Open on Top of Form

Does SQL Run Behind Queries?
Access 2007 When I run a query does Access, "go away" and run the SQL for what I see in the GUI? If the answer is, "yes" is there anything that I can switch on to see the SQL that it is running? What I would like to do, if it is possible, is to see the query in the GUI and, at the same time, see the SQL that is being used to select the data from the database; that way I can understand things (exactly what is happening) more clearly and more quickly.
