I have an app that has for years been executed out of the default directory with the data there, too.

Now, I have to give at least the data an arbitrary location. Can I use SET DEFAULT for this and save having to rewrite hundreds of table referring statements? Or are there nasty things to worry about?

I am thinking of having a config table in the startup default directory that specifies the data directory and then SET DEFAULT to that directory. When executing a .exe version of the app, I think this will not cause trouble, but for a debug version with separate .fxp, I think I also need to SET PATH for the code to be found. I join all my code together with SET PROCEDURE TO ... ADDITIVE in the startup .fxp if that makes a difference. Are the gotchas going to get me?
