I need a line of code that will tell me, yes or no, if a workbook is already opened by the computer. Anybody know?

The whole function

Well, your guy's advice has been useful, but I still get flustered when I try to adapt all of it to my situation. The following is the function I am trying to create written out in English. Maybe you can help me translate this into working code

OutputBook = "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop\" & Format(Date, "yymmdd") & " Schwab Trades.csv"

'If OutputBook does not exist Then
'Workbooks.Add
'Else If OutputBook exists but is not Open
'Workbooks.open(OutputBook)
'Else If OutputBook exists and is open
'Workbooks(OutputBook).activate <-- This last statement hasa not been working when its isolated and alone????
