"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi Koen,
Thank you for your answer, I see that  my question is not clear enough.
It looks good but the  "currentuser"  is also dynamic.
"currentuser" should  be the current windows user logged in.

Myfolder = Environ("Username")
MyPivotsrc = ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").SourceData

Dim str As String
Dim openPos As Integer
Dim closePos As Integer
Dim midBit As String


openPos = InStr(MyPivotsrc, "Users\")
closePos = InStr(MyPivotsrc, "\Downloads")
midBit = Mid(MyPivotsrc, openPos + 6, closePos - openPos - 6)
MyPivotsource = Replace(MyPivotsrc, midBit, Myfolder)
MyPivotsource = Replace(MyPivotsource, "'", "")
MyPivotsource = "C:" & MyPivotsource
