Hi Guys, I have a Macro, which is on the w drive, but if my colleague wants to run it on the v drive, it will stop. How do you find out the exact server name so everyone can use the same program? Here's my code:

  Workbooks.Open Filename:= _
        "w:\Treasury Finance Controls\Ledger v SS Recs\Recs - Murex_GBO\2013 Recs\11_2013 Recs\OBS\Full Ledger\" & PrevDay & "\ALM OBS " & PrevDay & "*.xlsx" _
        , Origin:=xlWindows
    Rows("3:3").Select
