If I read this right you want to check if a specific workbook is open and if not to open it?

If so then use the following:

Dim wb As Workbook
On Error Resume Next
Set wb=application.workbooks("WorkbookName.xls")
On Error Goto 0 'now reset error handling
If wb Is Nothing Then
application.workbooks.open("Path to file\WorkbookName.xls")
end if

Just another way to skin the cat :)

Sub FindWrkBk(PathToWorkbook As String, WrkBook As String)
Dim IsThere As Boolean
Dim Wrkbk As Workbook
IsThere = False
For Each Wrkbk In Workbooks
If Wrkbk.Name = WrkBook Then
IsThere = True
End If
If Not IsThere Then
Application.Workbooks.Open PathToWorkbook & "\" & WrkBook
End If
End Sub
Sub does()
FindWrkBk "C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\stuff", "class.xls"
End Sub
