I assume you want to do this with VBA also as with your next post. Here's a simple code example that opens a file, or to avoid a run time error alerts you that no such file exists.

Sub OpenFile()
On Error Resume Next
Application.Workbooks.Open "C:\My Documents\YourFileName.xls"
If Err Then MsgBox "No such file."
Err = 0
On Error GoTo 0
End Sub

HTH
