Hello I open a workbook with the code

Code:
Workbooks.Open ("\\Nas-bb\nas-2a\Quality Manager's Work Area\02 Laboratory Manual\10 Standard Inventory\C S O N H Standards.xlsx")

Isn't there a more elegant way? Such as

Code:
Workbooks.Open [C S O N H Standards.xlsx]

Thanks for any help

If the file to open is in the same folder as the file that is running the code, you don't need the full path. But otherwise, how else can VBA guess where your file is if you don't give it the path?

Something like this

Code:
   pPath ="\\Nas-bb\nas-2a\Quality Manager's Work Area\02 Laboratory Manual\10 Standard Inventory\"
   Workbooks.Open (pPath & "C S O N H Standards.xlsx")
