shrug-l: ArcMap layer paths vs. Map Publisher paths

Set your mxd to use relative paths. You do this by going to File>Map
Properties>Advanced. This will care across to your published map. As
long as the mxd or published map and the map data stay in the same
relative location to one another the map should work.

Subject: shrug-l: ArcMap layer paths vs. Map Publisher paths

Hello everyone,

I am trying to find out how to handle data paths from ArcMap which puts
the drive letter and get it to work on the map created by publisher.
Opening the file from the CD works, but as soon as it is in a different
location it does not work. I had saved the file with all its needed
files on the network and tried to access the published map in the
network, when I try to open it the map comes blank. I am not sure how to
correct this issue since ArcMap does not give any flexibility to edit
the path under the source tab. 

Any suggestions are welcome and thank you to everyone for the help.
