Sage 50 - switch from network to local and back again

My client has a single company, three user version of Sage 50 V2010

He wants to be able to take data home at the weekend, by doing a backup and restoring it on the hard drive of his computer, (ie in COMPANY.000)

The difficulty is that his company file points to N:\ (a mapped network drive)

What I want to do is allow him to be able to start Sage pointing at either the netword drive or COMPANY.000

I could do this with a batch file I think, but is there another way?

The COMPANY files is the only think that tells Sage where it's data is so you would have to change it if the data is going to be in a different location when the laptop is in use at home. 

I usually just edit it as and when required but, in an instance like this, I'd probably use 2 batch files, once for 'work' and one for 'home' that could both put the relevant company file into place and execute Sage.
