I want to move a file to another folder. Using this code, i got error "File already open"
Code:
 Name "c:\sour\file.txt" As "c:\dest\file.txt
Is there a workaround to move the file even when it is opened ?

Copy formula down without changing references
If you have =SUM(F2:F49) in F50; type Alt+' in F51 to copy =SUM(F2:F49) to F51, leaving the formula in edit mode. Change SUM to COUNT.

Sorry but U can't move an open file. U can use Copyfile to copy an open file to a new location. U can then close and Kill the old file. Why not just close the file before moving it? If the file may be either open or closed ( ie. unknown) then just add some error code to address both outcomes. HTH. Dave
