I want to open a file on a drive that is labelled as 'G:' on my pc. This particular drive does not have the same drive label on other pc's so I was hoping to open the file using the drve name.

Is this possible? I have tried a few variation of the full path name of the file, but with no joy.

Thanks all

Does the VLOOKUP table have to be sorted?
No! when you are using an exact match, the VLOOKUP table can be in any order. Best-selling items at the top is actually the best.
Hello,

I think you need to see IT, we had the same problem, instead of Z:\

we had to use

\\DRAW\OFFICE\CONTROL DOCUMENTS\
