vba that will look for a file in more than one location

I need to make Excel look in more than one location for a file, is this doable?

Some people in the firm have paths mapped to different letters. i.e. some people will have a path as S:EVERYONE\ACCT\Daily Reports\Dashboard Files\Outstanding.xls other people will have it as H:EVERYONE\ACCT\Daily Reports\Dashboard Files\Outstanding.xls.

I need excel to look in S and if it can't find it look in H

Thanks

This code will only work if you ARE SURE either file1 or file2 exists. If there's someone else with the file at another location, you have to expand your code.

file1 = "S:\EVERYONE\ACCT\Daily Reports\Dashboard Files\Outstanding.xls "
file2 = "H:\EVERYONE\ACCT\Daily Reports\Dashboard Files\Outstanding.xls"
If Dir(file1) <> "" Then
    Workbooks.Open Filename:=file1
Else
    Workbooks.Open Filename:=file2
End If
