Hi Experts,

I wrote the below coding to open a file based on wildcard file name match, the file is password protected file and i would like to open it as Read-Only, getting Compile or Syntax error when i try to add "ReadOnly:=True".

This method works ("Workbooks.Open Filename:="C:\DE6_AFTERREP3\SP_Files\FY21_TS_Price_contractual.XLSX", ReadOnly:=True") as expected but my expectation is to open the file based on wild card file name match.

Can someone help me to incorporate "Readonly = True" in below coding. Thanks for all your help in advance.


VBA Code:
Dim myFile As String
Dim myPath As String


myPath = "C:\DE6_AFTERREP3\SP_Files\"
myFile = Dir(myPath & "*TS_Price_contractual.xlsx", vbNormal)

If Len(myFile) = 0 Then
MsgBox "Agreement file not found...", vbExclamation
Exit Sub
End If

targetfile = myPath & myFile
Set wb = Workbooks.Open(targetfile) ReadOnly:=True
Set ws = wb.Sheets("FY_TS_Price_contractual")

wb.Sheets("FY21_Log").Cells.Copy ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Agreement_SP").Range("A1")

wb.Close

Regards,
Ranjith
