Locate aliases.conf ($PROGRAMFILES\Firebird\Firebird_1_5
\aliases.conf) and open in notepad

Add the line

ACC = d:\db\acc.fdb

Save the file and close

Change your connection string in your application from\db\acc.fdb to

Firebird will automatically lookup the path from the aliases.conf
when the connection is made.
