Show filesize ?

Posted by Chris D on January 17, 2002 9:44 AM

Hi all,

where =cell("filename") displays the name of the file at last save, is it possible to show filesize ?

(I just need the filesize shown in the cell, not as part of the filename)

18 meg and counting, that's VAT for you...

many thanks

Hello Chris,

There may be a way to do this with a worksheet function. I seem to remember Juan Pablo posting some sort of function using DOCUMENT but I have no idea how that works. However, this simple function returns the file size of the activeworkbook and it's not perfect...

Function FileSize() As Long
FileSize = FileLen(ActiveWorkbook.Path & "\" & ActiveWorkbook.Name)
End Function

Thanks DK,

I'm having a bit of trouble figuring out where to paste this code...

Got it, done it...

it checks to the meg value in "properties" too, so works a treat

thanks mate !!
