    Macro works in every folder except dropbox folder

    Hi,
    I'm new in this forum, so I'm not sure if this has been already asked before.
    I have a macro that takes all the data from the csv that exist in the same folder where the xlsm is. If you move the xlsm to another folder, it does the same with the csv that are in the new folder, because I used "ActiveWorkbook.Path". The problem is that it works in every folder except dropbox folder. My objective is to be able to run that xlsm from other computers.
    The message that appears says:
    "Run-time error '1004'. report.csv could not be found. Check the spelling of the file name, and verify that the file location is correct..."
    The highlighted sentence is: Workbooks.Open archi
    Report.csv really exists in that folder. How can I solve it? This is the code:

    When you are in the code, Press F to step through each line of code, find out where the code thinks "Archi" is

    I am not sure what you mean by drop down folder?

    Thanks for your answer davesexcel
    The macro works perfectly in traditional folders. Archi refers to every csv which is in the same folder.
    The problem is that I want to run that macro from other computers, so I'm trying to use a shared folder. For example, a dropbox folder (synchronised in my computer), but the macro doesn't work there. I've tried with dropbox, egnyte and google drive folders and the problem is always the same...
    Any thoughts? Does that kind of folders need something else?
    Thanks!

    It sounds something like a SharePoint server

    Re: Macro works in every folder except dropbox folder

    Any other ideas?
    My objective is to refresh the spreadsheet with new data running that macro, and let different people run the macro from different places. As I said "ActiveWorkbook.Path" works perfectly in every folder in my computer, except in the shared folders, which is what I wanted.

    Re: Macro works in every folder except dropbox folder

    Is it a shared folder or a Sharepoint folder?
