Hi @sprs248,

Try with the below code

Option Explicit

Sub MoveFiles()
    Dim FSO As Object
    Dim PATH, sourcefile As String, dest, DestinationFolderName, SourceFileName, Filename As String
    Dim lr, x As Long
    Set FSO = CreateObject("Scripting.Filesystemobject")
    PATH = Range("D2").Value
    lr = Cells(Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row
    If PATH <> "" Then
        For x = 2 To lr
            SourceFileName = Range("A" & x).Value
            DestinationFolderName = Range("B" & x).Value
            sourcefile = PATH & "\" & SourceFileName & ".emd"
            dest = PATH & "\" & DestinationFolderName & "\" & SourceFileName & ".emd"
            If Not FSO.FileExists(sourcefile) Then
                MsgBox ("File Not Found in " & sourcefile)
                FSO.MoveFile source:=sourcefile, Destination:=dest
                MsgBox (sourcefile + " Moved to " + dest)
            End If
        Next x
        MsgBox ("Please Insert PATH in cell 'D2'")
        Exit Sub
    End If
End Sub
