    You say it's on the same drive, but what about the Path?

    I am having the same issue. I would like to know what the resolution was for this developer. I would get the error 76 after having ran the program with one success. The files are still where the should be but I will get an error 76.

    Path not found means that there is a problem with your path. It could be a network drive that is not connected or it could just be a problem with the path in your code or a filename with illegal characters in it.

    The simple way to determine the problem is to set a breakpoint to check the value of your path or check it when the error occurs or use debug.print to print it to the debug window or use a msgbox to display it on screen once you see what it is you can see if that path is actually correct or not.

    I found that my code was having any issue with the relative path that was place in the code. Once I change it to absolute, it starting working correctly. Thank you for you assistance.
