This example will alow you to choose workbook and open it.
Sub OpenBook()
fname = Application.GetOpenFilename
If fname Then
Workbooks.Open fname
End If
End Sub


this returns run time error '13': Type mismatch after i have chosen the file
:rolleyes:
is there another way to do this?

Hi Hu,

Try:
Code:
Sub OpenBook()
    Dim fname As Variant, wbkTest As Workbook
    
    fname = Application.GetOpenFilename
    If fname <> False Then
        Set wbkTest = Workbooks.Open(fname)
    Else
        Exit Sub
    End If
    
End Sub
