Question

Why doesn't the Counties by Population Ratio 2000 to 1990.lyr file display when copied to a hard drive?

Answer

The Counties by Population Ratio 2000 to 1990.lyr file does not display unless the counties data set, popestmt table, and Counties by Population Ratio 2000 to 1990 layer reside under a folder called '\usa'. Within the '\usa' folder, the counties data set and Counties by Population Ratio 2000 to 1990 layer must reside in a folder called '\census', and the popestmt table must reside in a folder called '\other'.

[drive:]..\usa

	      \census\counties
	      \census\Counties by Population Ratio 2000 to 1990
	      \other\popestmt
Otherwise, the relative path stored in the Counties by Population Ratio 2000 to 1990.lyr file that points to the popestmt.dbf file will no longer be valid.
