In the following procedure, how would I specify opening a workbook in the location "My documents" or "Desktop"  

How about specifying a location in a server where:
the full name is:  "x:\users\acctg\Payable\data\summary.xlsx"
but the name as seen in "My computer" is merely x:\
Do I need to type out the full path?  
There must be  a efficient way to refer to drive locations.  No?  Or am I wrong?

Sub add_worksheet()

Dim target As String
Dim wb As Workbook

    target = "d:\summary.xlsx"
    Set wb = Workbooks.Open(target)
    wb.Worksheets.Add after:=wb.Worksheets("sheet1")

End Sub
