    No no no. No path used, because I sent the whole Access file to the user,
    so, I don't know where they will put it.
    Forget the path ! :)

    What I want to do is attach an Excel file INTO the Access FORM.

    Thank you.

    Not sure I quite understand what you're asking.

    Are you saying that the Excel file will be located in the same folder as the
    Access database, so that you need to determine where that is? If so, you can
    get that using CurrentProject.Path in Access 2000 or newer, or
    Left$(CurrentDb.Name, Len(CurrentDb.Name) - Len(Dir(CurrentDb.Name))) in
    previous versions.

    On the other hand, if you want the user to be able to search for the Excel
    file, take a look at http://www.mvps.org/access/api/api0001.htm at "The
    Access Web"

    If all you want to do is open an Excel workbook add a command button and set
    the Hyperlink property to the full path/name of the file

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
