Can someone show me how I can open the following file through VBA?

Code:
dt = Format(Now, "dd_mm_yyyy_hh:mm")

ThisWorkbook.path & "\Vehicle Maintenance Files\Reports\Vehicle Fleet Status Log " & dt & ".txt"

Select all contiguous cells
Pressing Ctrl+* (asterisk) will select the "current region" - all contiguous cells in all directions.
