    Hi, so I have a list of file names in an excel spreadsheet and I want help to find code that will create blank text files that are named after the spreadsheet. Like one file per cell containing a file name.

    Try this code
    Sub Test()
        Dim fso As Object, txtFil As Object, c As Range
    
    
        Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
        
        For Each c In Range("A1:A3")
            Set txtFil = fso.CreateTextFile(ThisWorkbook.Path & "\" & c.Value & ".txt", True)
            txtFil.Close
        Next c
    End Sub

            txtFil.Close
        Next c
    End Sub
    Hi, where will the new text file be created and saved?

    The new created text files will be in the same path of your workbook (ThisWorkbook.Path) >> you can change to your folder like that ("C:\MyFolder")
