When you add or change a file reference in a mapping, and the path cannot be resolved, MapForce displays a warning message. This way, MapForce diminishes the chance for broken path references to happen. Nevertheless, broken path references may still occur in cases such as:
|•||You use relative paths, and then move the mapping file to a new directory without moving the schema and instance files.|
|•||You use absolute paths to files in the same directory as the mapping file, and then move the directory to another location.|
When this happens, MapForce highlights the component in red, for example:
Broken path reference
The solution in this case is to double-click the component header and update any broken path references in the Component Settings dialog box (see also Changing the Component Settings ).
