cable removal

I am about to measure and impedance match on traces on a circuit board. I'm using a 8753E and SOLT calibrates the analyzer with a SMA cal kit on the cable connector, then I will measure the impedance on my circuit board and I need to connect a cable to my instrument. This means that my cable to SMA adapter is not in my calibration. How can I compensate for it. I've heard that I can open-short calibrate the cable somehow. Please help.
