    Question Extract file path from sheet location - then open another file in the same directory

    Hi

    I'm new to excel land self taught, I'm having trouble with a Macro I wish to create which will extract the file path from the active workbook and use this file path to open a new file with a predetermined name that sits in the same directory.

    The code works fine when I manually enter the file directory but I wish to obtain the file directory from the active work books location.
