VBA is having difficulty finding my files using the wildcard *. Is there an issue with the syntax in this statement?
Workbooks.Open Filename:="C:\Users\xxxx\Desktop\xxxx Charts\xxxx Source Files\*_history_" & myYear & "-" & myMonth & "-" & mydate & "_" & myHour & "h" & myminute & "m" & "00s_xxx_all_xxx.csv"
where the wildcard I’m trying to match is Capital Letter, number,number,number, hyphen, number, number, number, number like this: A999-9999
Note: if I type out the A999-9999 (for example) it runs, so there does not appear to be an issue with the variables or the rest of the statement.
Thank you for any assistance.
Something like this pointed at your directory to find all
csv files matching “–.csv” with a second stage check to open the first file matching your desired file pattern
Sub LoopThroughFiles() Dim StrFile As String Dim bFound As Boolean Dim WB As Workbook StrFile = Dir("c:\temp\*-*.csv") Do While Len(StrFile) > 0 If StrFile Like "[A-Z]
Answer：#.csv" Then Set WB = Workbooks.Open("c:\temp\" & StrFile) bFound = True Exit Do Else StrFile = Dir End If Loop If Not bFound Then MsgBox "File not found", vbCritical End Sub
