Hi folks,
Im writing a Macro that opens another workbook. Both workbooks are in the same folder, always. But the folder is always changing. Can I use relative address reference on the macro instead of qriting the whole address?

Thx!

Will the fill handle fill 1, 2, 3?
Yes! Type 1 in a cell. Hold down Ctrl while you drag the fill handle.

Can you not use the path of the workbook the code is in to open the other workbook?
Code:
Set wbThis = ThisWorkbook ' create reference to workbook code is in
 
Set wbOther = Workbooks.Open (ThisWorkbook.Path & "\OtherWorkbookName.xls")
