Gurus,

I writing some code that performs actions on various files that are saved at different locations. Now i want to give my users the possibility to select the files that should be included in the macro.

So basically, the user will start the macro which performs some actions. At one point the macro asks to open a file and when the file is opened the macro continues running.

Hope you have an idea. Thanks

How to fill five years of quarters?
Type 1Q-2023 in a cell. Grab the fill handle and drag down or right. After 4Q-2023, Excel will jump to 1Q-2024. Dash can be any character.

Thanks Jim,

I got it to work.
Other question.
When the file is opened it might require some changes. (The macro can check whether these changes are required). How do i allow the user to make the changes before continuing the macro?

Cheers! Robbert
