    hey guys we have some excel worksheets in the office an use neo-office to use VBA with the Macros, an the Macros point to save files to a storage device on the network, using a path like //001-stoarge/folder/

    to save them manually would take a lot of time.

    is there a way for Mac , or neo office to see the path like windows does? or UNC way

    I am sure there is a way, but I am not on a network to try it, nor have I had a need to

    MR user nadyne is from the MS Mac Business Unit I believe and could probably help you if someone else doesn't come along soon with a solutions

    thanks
    macdawg,
    i asked him but he said he cant help

    ...i think my questions should be more like , does mac support UNC,
    so instead of seeing a file path like
    /Volumes/floder/folder

    it would read

    //Terastation/folder/folder

    Yes, it does, but the format is:
    Code:
    smb://<server>/<fileshare>
    So for the above it would be:
    Code:
    smb://Terastation/folder/folder
    The issue is that when Windows sees \\, it sees that as a fileshare. For Unix, you need to preface the // and tell the system what protocol to use.
