    Default VBA- Getfile Method

    I need some VBA help. I am trying to use the getfile method and am looking under the help file. It tells me I need to write a pathspec for the current file I am using, and it says I can make an absolute or relative reference to the file.

    I want to make the pathspec for getfilename refer to this file no matter where it is saved on the hardrive so that the code always works despite location of file saved.

    Writing this pathspec is what I am unsure of. How do I write an absolute or relative reference for the file I am using?

    it is a workbook that I have 4 colums. When you press a button, it looks in the folder that it is saved in and brings over the file name, the type, the size, and the attributes of any file in the current folder.

    In order to do this, I need a reference to the current workbook file so that no matter where it is saved, it will search the folder and bring in the information to the excel sheet.

    sorry about not being so clear.

    Ahh.. so maybe what you're looking for is

    ThisWorkbook.Path

    to get the folder in which the workbook is saved ?
