I get an error when I open my spreadsheet that has a query

I have a spreadsheet with an ODBC query. When I open the spreadsheet, I get a "Run-time error '1004': Method 'Range' of object'_Global' failed" message. I attached a screenshot. When I click on Debug, it takes me to visual basics. How do I resolve this? Thanks!

Is the named range "Path" defined? If not it would explain the error. Quick check change Range("Path") to point to an empty cell as a test eg Range("A1").value

That cods is being triggered whenever the workbook is opened. It doesn't appear to have anything to do with your ODBC query. It looks like it's trying to capture whether the file location has changed since the file was last opened.

Thanks guys. Michael74 I tried your suggestion, and that pointed me in a direction. James, you are right, it was actually for a different query. I used this query for something else and modified it to be the new query. I just didn't delete all the old macros. Thanks for both your help!
