That is a great tool. I did not know ESRI had added it. Every time I take a class from ESRI I have asked about that ability and they always said it was not possible to globally change the path. I now have something new to pass along to my students. Thanks.

  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?
