If my string "A" is empty it replaces FIL1 with nothing - great.

But if my string contains the filepath that I want, it does not do anything?

Hm...

VBA Code:
    Cells.Replace What:="FIL1", Replacement:=A, LookAt:=xlPart, _
        SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=True, SearchFormat:=False, _
        ReplaceFormat:=False, FormulaVersion:=xlReplaceFormula2

How to find 2nd largest value in a column?
MAX finds the largest value. =LARGE(A:A,2) will find the second largest. =SMALL(A:A,3) will find the third smallest
