Below is code to import data from MDB. How do I get the fixed path C:\Structures.mdb to be a path that is from a cell in excel (lets say B1)? When I put that cell into this, it then doesnt work.

VBA Code:
Sub MDB_DATA()
'
' MDB_DATA Macro
'

'
    ActiveWorkbook.Queries.Add name:="tblStructures", Formula:= _
        "let" & Chr(13) & "" & Chr(10) & "    Source = Access.Database(File.Contents(""C:\Structures.mdb""), [CreateNavigationProperties=true])," & Chr(13) & "" & Chr(10) & "    _tblStructures = Source{[Schema="""",Item=""tblStructures""]}[Data]," & Chr(13) & "" & Chr(10) & "    #""Removed Other Columns"" = Table.SelectColumns(_tblStructures,{""FileName"", ""LiveLoadInc""})" & Chr(13) & "" & Chr(10) & "in" & Chr(13) & "" & Chr(10) & "    #""Removed Other Columns"""
    ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets.Add
    With ActiveSheet.ListObjects.Add(SourceType:=0, Source:= _
        "OLEDB;Provider=Microsoft.Mashup.OleDb.1;Data Source=$Workbook$;Location=tblStructures;Extended Properties=""""" _
        , Destination:=Range("$A$1")).QueryTable
        .CommandType = xlCmdSql
        .CommandText = Array("SELECT * FROM [tblStructures]")
        .RowNumbers = False
        .FillAdjacentFormulas = False
        .PreserveFormatting = True
        .RefreshOnFileOpen = False
        .BackgroundQuery = True
        .RefreshStyle = xlInsertDeleteCells
        .SavePassword = False
        .SaveData = True
        .AdjustColumnWidth = True
        .RefreshPeriod = 0
        .PreserveColumnInfo = True
        .ListObject.DisplayName = "tblStructures"
        .Refresh BackgroundQuery:=False
    End With
End Sub
 

Excel Facts

Show numbers in thousands?
Use a custom number format of #,##0,K. Each comma after the final 0 will divide the displayed number by another thousand
