Hi
I want to ask user to enter workbook number to close and then close that workbook accordingly. So I wrote the code below, but did not run. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Code:
Sub mywb2()
    Dim x As Integer
    x = InputBox("which workbook")
    "workbooks" &x.close
End Sub

When did Power Query debut in Excel?
Although it was an add-in in Excel 2010 & Excel 2013, Power Query became a part of Excel in 2016, in Data, Get & Transform Data.

What do you mean by "workbook number"?
What exactly would they be entering?
Do you mean the name of the workbook?
