Need to create a Macro that goes to a workbook and a specific worksheet and copies a defined range of cells. It then returns to a centalized page where the data is pasted. This process continues for multiple workbooks until the loop is complete (The Directory Names and File Names for the workbooks are defined in a worksheet).

My problem is that I cannot find a way to close the workbooks that the initial data was copied from once that process has taken place. I cannot call out the actual name because there will be multiple ones used. I do not know how to make it work using the variable name I assigned (MyFile) either?

Any suggestions are appreciated. The code I used is as follows:


Sub CreateGroupProcurementsFile()
'
Application.ScreenUpdating = False

'create variable for user path and file
Dim MyPath
Dim MyFile

'start at first file
MACRO.Select
Range("A7").Select

'create loop for each file
Do Until ActiveCell = ""
Let MyPath = ActiveCell.Value
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).Range("A1").Select
Let MyFile = ActiveCell.Value
ChDir MyPath
Workbooks.Open Filename:=MyFile, UpdateLinks:=0

'Copy and Paste Range file

Sheets("Plan").Select
Range("A51:T1200").Copy

Windows("GroupProcurements.xls").Activate
GroupProcurement.Select
Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Select
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select

Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues

'move down to next file
MACRO.Select
ActiveCell.Offset(0, -1).Range("A1").Select
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Range("A1").Select
Loop
'end of loop above

GroupProcurement.Select

End Sub

You can teach Excel a new custom list. Type the list in cells, File, Options, Advanced, Edit Custom Lists, Import, OK

What you probably want to do is create a reference to the workbook you've opened.

Something like this perhaps.
Code:
Set wbOpen =  Workbooks.Open (Filename:=MyFile)
You can then use this to close the workbook.
Code:
wbOpen.Close
