Long story short. we have about 10 teams that were running a template that had macros embedded in the files. I'm trying to see if its possible... if i had a list of the 10 file locations, go down that list, open the file and then run said macros associated with each opened file. before I dig any deeper into this, is this even a possibility?
I have attempted setting the new opened file as a new workbook(WB2) and then trying to run macros based out of that workbook.

process from main excel file

  1. run macro button
  2. opens first file on list (wb2)
  3. runs said macro from first opened workbook (wb2)
  4. closes wb2
  5. loops 2-4
