Hello. I kindly received the macro below. I would like to change it so that it references the current directory where the starting file is located. This macro creates a bunch of new files based on the starting file and I want them all to be in the same directory as the starting file, instead of hard coding a directory in the macro. Can anyone suggest the solution to this?
The directory is currently hard coded as
"C:\Users\Bill\Desktop\Analysis\n-1AttrSelOneR\
Thank you.
Sub decrementrows()
    Application.DisplayAlerts = False
    lastrow = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
    For I = lastrow To lastrow - 158 Step -1
        Cells(I, 1).EntireRow.Delete
        fname = "C:\Users\Bill\Desktop\Sony Analysis\n-1AttrSelOneR\StartingFile -" & lastrow - I + 1 & ".csv"
        ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=fname, FileFormat:=xlCSV
    Next I
    Application.DisplayAlerts = True
End Sub

This assumes that the starting file is the active workbook






Sub decrementrows()
Dim curDir As String
curDir = ActiveWorkbook.Path
    Application.DisplayAlerts = False
    lastrow = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
    For I = lastrow To lastrow - 158 Step -1
        Cells(I, 1).EntireRow.Delete
        fname = curDir & "\StartingFile -" & lastrow - I + 1 & ".csv"
        ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=fname, FileFormat:=xlCSV
    Next I
    Application.DisplayAlerts = True
End Sub


MsgBox curDir
