View Full Version : Solved: Macro Equation

03-07-2013, 06:12 PM
I don't know if this is the correct term, but I hope you guys understand. Please bear with me as I'm a newbie when it comes to this.

I am having a hard time to reflect one equation to another equation. I am not sure but this might need dimming. Requesting for backup

Sub test232()
Dim FName4
Dim FName

FSource = "Y:\MNLGSCSALNNP\Administrative\CnC\Tools\"

FName4 = "All-In-One Updater\KCForwarder Updater*.xls*"
FName = FName & "4"

Workbooks.Open (FSource & FName)

End Sub

I want FName to reflect the FName4 value.

FName = FName4

Hi Dave,

Thanks for your response. The code above is just an example. Im doing it because im performing a loop. there's a lot of links and i want to shorten the code.

my loop code is like this:

FSource = "C:/Tools/"
FName1 = FileA
FName2 = FileB
FName3 = FileC

x = 1
x = 1 + 1
If x = 5 Then GoTo EndThis

FName = FName & x

Workbooks.Open (FSource & FName)

GoTo Loop1

like that
so i need to call FName to increment the value from FName1 to FName3 for example

welcome to the forum.

do you want to open all files in a folder?

this might help:

to loop you must use "x = x + 1" instead of "x = 1 + 1" . Now you can reach 5.

This is an example of how you might 'reword' what you've written:

Sub OpenFiles()

Dim FSource As String
Dim Fname(1 To 3) As String
Dim count As Integer

FSource = "C:/Tools/"
Fname(1) = FileA
Fname(2) = FileB
Fname(3) = FileC

For count = 1 To 3
Workbooks.Open (FSource & Fname(count))
Next count

End Sub

If you want to open all excel files in a folder then Mancubus's solution is probably the way to go.

Hi Sassora,

your code is exactly what i'm looking for. Man, you are great. For everyone who replied, thank you as well.

I didn't know that "()" made this possible. Thank you once again
