Guys -

I am trying to open .vis file using wild cards. The wild card is not working for one particular scenario.

The below code is working fine if the File Name is Trial.vis. But, it will not work if the file name is Trial_RE.vis. (However, for .xlsx, it works fine for both the scenarios)

Code:
fPath = InputBox("What is the folder path?", "Path", ThisWorkbook.Path)
    If fPath = "" Then Exit Sub
    
    If Right(fPath, 1) <> "\" Then
    fPath = fPath & "\"
    End If
    
    vFile = Dir(fPath & "*Trial*.vis")
    Workbooks.Open Filename:=vFile
        
    Set wbCopyFrom = Workbooks.Open(vFile)
 

Excel Facts

Move date out one month or year
Use =EDATE(A2,1) for one month later. Use EDATE(A2,12) for one year later.
