you could use a global macro and then use. then you only have to change the macro var.

global p ""I:\mydata\stata\whatever1\"

use "$p\data.dta", clear

Hi dear statalist users,

I am using a flash drive with stata files on it. When I move from one computer to another computer, flash drive can change the name from, for example, "I:\" to "G:\" and I have to edit my files.
Is there a way to say to Stata the letter where the flash drive is located and put that letter in a macro that can be later used in my programms?

More generally, any tips on how to organaze the workflow when you move from one workplace to another?

Best
