    I have a microsoft access database that links to another access database on a shared network drive. My drive is mapped to the S drive by my business partner is mapped to the T drive. When I run a macro it works great on my computer. When I run it on his computer we have to used the table link manager to go find the tables again.

    Is there a way to make it not worry about what letter the share drive is?

    Also, I import the tables into an excel sheet then run a macro that refreshes all the imports and refreshes a bunch of pivot tables. The share drive problem breaks those links too. Is there a way around this?

    As a followup, everything resides in the same folder in a shared network drive. Is there a way for excel tables to refresh off a file within that folder? That's really the standstill that we're at.
