Basically there are two ways that your data might be linked. Since you mention FDO, it's likely that a Join was created between two FDO datasets. You can manage the Join after it has been created. Everything you need to know about this can be found in the help here:


Modifying or Removing Joins


If you are using a link template to link tabular data with AutoCAD geometry + object data, then you can't really modify the existing link template. But you can change the path back to the database and easily Delete Links, create a new Link Template, and Generate Links again. This is spelled out here:


Editing a Link Template


Hope this helps :smileyhappy:
