    change vba code from year to year

    I have some vba code that contains exact information that needs to be flexible. I've included a portion of code with a cell value below, but some vba references a file name or drive information with the year 2016.

    For i = 2 To lastRow
    If Cells(i, 8).Value = "2016" Then
    Cells(i, 1).Resize(1, 20).Interior.ColorIndex = 36
    End If
    Next i

    I would like to be able to change a specific word/number without manually accessing module and find/replacing all 2016.
    Is there another option?

    I would normally create a "configuration" or "control" sheet and store that kind of variable information there. I usually define Named Ranges so that the structure of the configuration sheet is also flexible. Then you never touch the code.
