    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.
