you have this

 stDB = "C:\Users\Ritsick\Documents\Red_Compass\DRA\Full Master Sink 5.accdb"

and used, StrDBPath on the connection

   'Create the connectionstring.
    sConn = "Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;" & _
                             "Data Source=" & StrDBPath & ";" & _
                             "Jet OLEDB:Engine Type=5;" & _
                             "Persist Security Info=False;"


change this

 stDB = "C:\Users\Ritsick\Documents\Red_Compass\DRA\Full Master Sink 5.accdb"

with
 stDBPath = "C:\Users\Ritsick\Documents\Red_Compass\DRA\Full Master Sink 5.accdb"
