    Default Data Link Table: File address won't stay in place, have to reload the location again

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hi everyone,

    So I just upgraded to MEP 2013 last week and am in a bad situation where when I keep making my data link tables to a range on an excel table the file name's full address is not staying when I go to insert the table.

    (ex. D:/Documents/JB Plans/NK.xlsm is just NK.xlsm when I try to insert the table)

    Does anybody know of some defaulting or setting that I haven't found involving this issue?

    Thanks

    Alright, I feel dumb. I didn't realize the path type was set to a "Relative Path". I've started setting them to "Full Path" and it's working. A note to anybody with a similar problem in the future.
