Hi
I have a number of Excel files containing macros that point to a server location
I wish to move these files to a Synology NAS and thus edit the macros to reflect this path modification

Is there an easy way to update these macros without opening all the files and searching for references to the original server ?

thanks
yann

One way to solve this is to create file path alias in the network layer (LAN).
For e.g.  if the original file path is //servername/proj/...
Request your network team to create re-direction path for //servername/proj/ to //NAS/proj

This is a workable solution if the //servername/proj has been permanently removed.
