hey, I have a macro that creates a diagram and copies it to another file.. my code looks like this one:

'create diagram:

ActiveSheet.Shapes.AddChart2(227, xlLine).Select
ActiveChart.SetSourceData Source:=Range( _
"'Tabelle1'!$F$3:$F$722")

ActiveChart.FullSeriesCollection(1).XValues = _
"='Tabelle1'!$B$3:$B$722"


'copy diagram:

ActiveChart.ChartArea.Select
Application.CutCopyMode = False
ActiveChart.ChartArea.Copy
Windows("Masterfile Diagramm.xlsx").Activate
ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("summary").Select
ActiveChart.Paste


I want to run this code on a group of Excel files (e.g. file1, file2, file3 and file4) without editing every single workbook of every file (without Auto_Open() or Workbook_Open) and also by referencing to the files with a loop.
Maybe similar like this(?):


dim i as integer
for i=1 to 20
<code class="vb plain">workbooks.open filename:= </code><code class="vb string">"file"</code> <code class="vb plain">& i</code>

<code class="vb plain">next i</code>




I cannot figure out a way to do it without writing a sub Workbook_open() macro in every file which is too much work if I have 50 or more files to run the macro on.

Thanks for your help and have a good weekend!
