the formula has changed? Have you tried looking at the Links in the workbook and change the source of the file there? Or define a name in the workbook and use that for your path, and thus have a definite path defined where you control it. – datatoo Jun 14 '12 at 14:43
Not the formula, only the path. the name does not changed, nor the path. Only the path loses information of destiny. – Góis Jun 15 '12 at 9:29
