I have a MS ACCESS single file (accdb) that is placed on a cloud storage. It is shared , and hence can be opened by different users. Each user have access to the same cloud , but the path of course is mapped different on each one's PC. The MS ACCESS file is linked with an EXCEL file for use of one (Linked Table).  When original user open ACCESS from their PC with original location, it works well. However, other users have to change the path and use the Relink button in (Linked Table Manager screen) each time they open ACCESS so they can adjust the path of the EXCEL. Is there a way to chage path of linked table by using VBA, so each time the MS ACCESS is started, it detects the path it is and ajusts the linked table accordingly ( both files ACCESS and EXCEL) are on same folder.
