Hi All,

Can someone provide me with some code that tests if a certain workbook is open, If it s open 'do something' if not, Msgbox "File not open..."

Bring active cell back into view
Start at A1 and select to A9999 while writing a formula, you can't see A1 anymore. Press Ctrl+Backspace to bring active cell into view.

this code will test if the file name TEST.XLS is open or not;
Code:
Sub test_if_open()
   Dim File As String
    File = "TEST.XLS"
        If IsWbOpen(File) Then
            MsgBox "Open"
                Else
                    MsgBox "File Not Open"
        End If
End Sub
Function IsWbOpen(wbName As String) As Boolean
    On Error Resume Next
    IsWbOpen = Len(Workbooks(wbName).Name)
End Function
