Hello,

I am a little stumped on an issue that I am facing. I am simply trying to open a second workbook and am getting a type mismatch error. I can't figure out the issue and have spent hours debugging and searching around the internet. It seems to be whenever I try to load a 2nd file, no matter which order.

Thanks for the look!

Code:
Sub Test()
Dim fname, ename, fpath, epath As Variant
Dim intChoicef, intchoicee As Integer
Dim fWorkBook, eWorkBook As Workbooks
With Workbooks("KPRO Summary Test 2")
fpath = Application.GetOpenFilename
If fpath <> False Then
    fname = Mid(fpath, InStrRev(fpath, "\") + 1, (Len(fpath) - InStrRev(fpath, "\", 1)))
        Workbooks("KPRO Summary Test 2").Sheets("Sheet1").Cells(1, 3).Value = "[" & fname & "]KPRO SUMMARY"
    Set fWorkBook = Workbooks.Add(fpath)
    Else
    MsgBox "Please select a file"
End If
epath = Application.GetOpenFilename
If epath <> False Then
    ename = Mid(epath, InStrRev(epath, "\") + 1, (Len(epath) - InStrRev(epath, "\", 1)))
        Workbooks("KPRO Summary Test 2").Sheets("Sheet1").Cells(2, 3).Value = "[" & ename & "]CCIR Tracker"
    Set eWorkBook = Workbooks.Add(epath)
    Else
    MsgBox "Please select a file"
End If
End With
Workbooks("KPRO Summary Test 2").Activate
End Sub

Need 1 part of a formula to always point to the same range? use $ signs: $V$2:$Z$99 will always point to V2:Z99, even after copying

I did not test, but you probably want to be declaring your variables like:

Code:
Dim fname As Variant
Dim ename As Variant
'etc
Dim fWorkBook As Workbook
Dim eWorkBook As Workbook

See, each variable must have 'As [some type]' after it, else it is just a Variant. In this case, you also want to declare the opening workbook (the one you are setting a reference to) 'As Workbook', not 'Workbooks', which would refer to the Workbooks Collection instead of an individual Workbook Object. Does that make sense?

Finally, you probably want to use the Workbooks.Open method, rather than the .Add method.

Hope that helps,

Mark
