    Hi Guys,

    Am having a problem with some code, I have included this path in the code:

    strSS = "C:\database\appointments\appointment_" _
    & "*" & rst.Fields("User Name") & ".xls" 'the name of the
    field

    And fails here:
    DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, 8, "tempAppointments",
    _
    strTransfer, True, ""

    Yet when I run this code I get an error message stating that it is looking
    for a file path of C:\reliable

    if I run in the code in the immediate the response's are:

    ?strSS
    C:\database\appointments\appointment_*Les.xls

    ?strTransfer
    Appointment_173_Les.xls

    So it finds the file in the correct folder then when it loops to look for
    more it appears to be looking elsewhere. I do have a folder C:\reliable but
    have no mention of it within my code??

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    TIA
    Les

    I don't see any reference to strSS in your "DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet"
    statement.

    One thing I did notice is that you have included an asterisk ("*") in your
    filename. This is not allowed since the asterisk is used as a wildcard in
    filename references, not a literal character.

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!
