Why does \\localhost\share not work?

Why does \\localhost\share not work?
 
I am trying to work out why it is that \\localhost\share does not work. I am to type it into windows explorer in Windows XP and expect it will show this share that I have just created. This is a bit strange as from another PC I can access this share using \\mypcname\share. So why is \\localhost not working. I can ping it ok.
 
What I was trying to do is this. When I am in the office I am using a data share \\myserver\mydata. When I take my laptop and work remotely I cannot access my server. I thought it would be handy if I leave all my data in a data directory on the laptop ans share it  as mydata. If I can add an entry in my hosts file where I associate 127.0.0.1 to the myserver name I should be in business pointing \\locahost\mydata to the local data directory. It doesn't work however. Unfortunately.
 
Can anyone advice?
