I have a Transfer Spread Sheet macro that imports an excel file and I am wanting to create a file name path that will work for multiple users on my network and off my network.

So, here is what I have tried and it didnt work.

"\\%COMPUTERNAME%\Users\%username%\Documents\Import\file name.xls"

try doing this way..
in your macro add a single action (RunCode)
Action
RunCode


Function Name ImportXL()


now create a function in a regular VBA module

Function ImportXL()

dim strFile as string
strFile="\\%COMPUTERNAME%\Users\%username%\Documents\Import\file name.xls"

'complete this line for the TransferSpreadsheet command

docmd.transferspreadsheet acimport,8, "NameOfTable", strFile, true,"NameOfsheet!"

end function

It doesnt like this line even though I added the name of the TABLE and the Name of the Sheet

docmd.transferspreadsheet acimport,8, "NameOfTable", strFile, true,"NameOfsheet!"

It works if I use the actual computer name and username in the path

strFile="\\%COMPUTERNAME%\Users\%username%\Documents\Import\file name.xls"

with

strFile=environ("userprofile") & "\Documents\Import\file name.xls"

That did it!!

I know that wasnt part of the question but how do I add a notification to the module that shows that the table updated?

Thanks
