Change the path of the data source in my Excel pivot table with macro

With a macro I need to change the path of the data source in my Excel pivot table

\Users\James\Downloads[exampleexcel.xls]

to:

\Users\currentuser\Downloads[exampleexcel.xls]

Please note that [exampleexcel.xls] is also dynamic.

Anybody can help me? Thank you very much.

    MyPivotSource = "\Users\currentuser\Downloads\" & MyFilename
    ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").ChangePivotCache ActiveWorkbook. _
        PivotCaches.Create(SourceType:=xlDatabase, SourceData:=MyPivotsource, Version _
        :=xlPivotTableVersion15)

Open in new window


Would this be what you are looking for?

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.
