Access Shared Drive with multiple letters assigned

Hi Experts,

Recently updated my macro to take an account of different drive letters for Shared Files (lines 33&34).  Now the macro acts as if it can't find the file that I would like to pull the data from (Budget info.xlsm).  It opens a window to find the file.  Once the file is manually populated  it will then autofill in the information for any additional new project sheets that are added.  Could someone please take a look at my vba to see what I did wrong?

Module - AddSheet
Sub AddSheet()
   'Replace "Sheet1" with the name of the sheet to be copied.
    Dim i As Integer, x As Integer
    Dim shtname As String, strPath As String, strFilename As String, strLookupSheet As String, strLookupRange As String, strLookupValue As String
   
    Dim wbOutput As Workbook, wbLookup As Workbook
    Dim wsTemplate As Worksheet, wsNew As Worksheet
    
    Set wbOutput = ActiveWorkbook
    shtname = InputBox("Enter Project Number?", "Sheet name?")
    
    'check for valid shtName
    On Error Resume Next
    Set wsNew = wbOutput.Sheets(shtname)
    If Err.Number = 9 Then
        'there was NOT a sheet with this name. so OK
        ActiveSheet.Unprotect
        wbOutput.Sheets("Template").Copy _
            Before:=wbOutput.Sheets("Summary")
        
        Set wsNew = ActiveSheet ' the newly copied one
        wsNew.Name = shtname
       
        wsNew.Range("B7").Value = shtname

Hi,

Why not try to use the mapped drives

To see the full path to your mapped network drive just open a cmd window and type net use.  This will show you the full path to all your mapped network drives.

Sorry, I am little confused are you saying to use \\SSFilePrint\GROUPSHARE\Store Planning\Projects\Reports?  

The vba was working when all users when I was just using line 30 - strPath = "G:\Store Planning\Projects\Reports;"

How do I get the vba to work properly when I have a "G" and "S" drive?

As Rgonzo said:

strPath = "\\SSFilePrint\GROUPSHARE\Store Planning\Projects\Reports;"

Thank you both.  I did try the solution when Rgonzo sent but I updated line 33 and that's when the new window opened.  Placing on line 30 works.
