strBgnPath = "K:\\AllFiles\IES\Conversion Dept\Management\PM Reports\"
strEndPath = StrConv(Format(Date, "yyyy\\mm mmm yy\\"), vbProperCase)
strFile = "ManagementFiles" & Format(Date, "yymmdd") & "pm"

If it's a XL file (suffix missing)

strBgnPath = "K:\\AllFiles\IES\Conversion Dept\Management\PM Reports\"
 strEndPath = StrConv(Format(Date, "yyyy\\mm mmm yy\\"), vbProperCase)
 strFile = "ManagementFiles" & Format(Date, "yymmdd") & "pm"
 strPathAndFile = strBgnPath & strEndPath & strFile
Workbooks.Open strPathAndFile
