Changing multiple XREF file locations

Will soon be changing the xref location dir for new and upgraded office network.  The problem being that l have 100's of files with some exceeding 200 - 300 xref's. Is there a way to change the paths via a multiple option rather than completing this method one by one. i.e;

 

  1. xref
  2. (select xref)
  3. @ found at; browse for select path
  4. find xref and open

Any help would be appreciated

Reference Manager is an external app you install with AutoCAD that will do just that.

Thanks Dean, you've saved me a couple days of work.

I really appreciate your time and quick response.  I had already installed this as part of 2011 but like most new products and additions, find it hard to spend the time to go through and see what there all about.

Cheers
