I'm using this code I've found on the site to enter the name of a file selected.

HTML:
OpenFile = Application.GetOpenFilename("Textfiles (*.txt),*.txt", , "Open a textfile...")
   
    Sheets("Test").Range("J2").Value = OpenFile
However the cell shows the full path name and extension, I need it to show the file name only.

Can anyone assist?

Try:
Code:
OpenFile = Application.GetOpenFilename("Textfiles (*.txt),*.txt", , "Open a textfile...")
txt = Split(OpenFile, "\")
Sheets("Test").Range("J2").Value = txt(UBound(txt))

Almost there, at the end it's still showing .txt

I also need that part removing.

Can anyone assist further?
