Is there a way to find out which drive and directory a particular file is in. I would like to be able to do this through VBA. All I need is to be able to capture the drive letter and the folder that a particular file is in and save it.
Any Ideas.....?
 

Excel Facts

Control Word Wrap
Press Alt+Enter to move to a new row in a cell. Lets you control where the words wrap.
Thanks Paddy,
But how do I get it to search for the file using multiple drives. Can I search for the file in drives c:,D,and F at the same time?

Also I don't need to open the file I just need to be able to store the Drive Letter and path as string.

Any Help Greatly appreciated..
Thanks..
