This looks more correct...(right?)

Do While fName <> "FileA"

how can i keep FILEA undeleted while deleting all other files?

Code:
Dim fName As String

    fName = Dir("C:\test\*.*")
    Do While fName <> ""
    
        If fName <> "fileA.xls" Then'or .txt or .csv or whatever

            Kill "C:\test\" & fName
        End If

        fName = Dir
    Loop
