shrug-l: Set Data Source

Thanks! This is exactly what I'm looking for.  
I had relative path names set, but it's only relative to the mxd
location.  Our Data Library wasn't on the same drive, so ArcGIS had no
idea where to go for the Data Library data.

In ArcCatalog, right click on the MXD and hit "Set Data Sources" There
is a replace all option where you could easily change "V:\" to "N:\Data
Library\" as long as the path is the same under that.

	Is there a way to change the data source for multiple data
layers in ArcMap?  We recently changed our data library location and now
all my links have to be reset.  Only part of the path name has changed
(i.e. V: to N:\Data Library).  Any suggestions?
