Hi everyone.

I’m looking for an Excel VBA to insert the subfolder name and one folder before that (parent folder) in separate cells such as A1 and A2.
Example:
I have saved Book1.xlsm in the following directory:
C:\Users\Matthew\Downloads\F23343\29035020\Book1.xlsm


** Important**: The directory path (last two folders names) would be changed for each Excel sheet. For example, new Excel sheet could be saved in a different directory such as C:\Users\Matthew\Downloads\Z0253343\27654020\Book1.xlsm

So, the code shouldn’t only rely on these names and directory.

In this case, I need the VBA code to insert 29035020 and F23343 names into two separate cells. Also, for the F23343, is there any way to exclude the letter F and only insert 23343?

Your help is highly appreciated. Thanks
