    Variable in a file path (VBA/Powerpoint/2000)

    Hi everyone.

    A quick question. Is it possible to use a variable in a file path that occurs several times in some code. For example, c:Pictureschart.....?

    many thanks

    Thom

    Yes, by declaring a constant or variable, and using & to concatenate strings. For example:

    Dim strFile As String
    Dim strPath As String
    strPath = "C:PicturesChart"
    strFile = "Orders.xls"
    Workbooks.Open strPath & strFile
    ...
    strFile = "Accounts.xls"
    Workbooks.Open strPath & strFile
    ...

    If the path will never change, you can replace

    Dim strPath As String
    strPath = "C:PicturesChart"

    with

    Const strPath = "C:PicturesChart"
