Hi very new to VBA and coding so all help would be very appreciated.

So i have about 37 files which i need to open with VBA and then take some data and aggregate it into a summary however some of the files are password protected thankfully with the same password.

I am using the Application.Get Open file name to get the location of all the files and then usings a loop from 1 to n to open the FileNames(i) what can i do so that as the workbook is opened and it asks for the password it types in the password "password1".

Sub Aggregation_Data()
Dim FileNames As Variant, i As Integer, j As Integer
Dim TWB As Workbook, aWB As Workbook



Set TWB = ThisWorkbook

MsgBox ("Enter Files that you wish to import data from")

FileNames = Application.GetOpenFilename(FileFilter:="Excel Filter (*.xlsx), *xlsx", Title:="Open File(s)", MultiSelect:=True)

For i = 1 To UBound(FileNames)

Workbooks.Open FileNames(i)

Next i

End Sub

Hi

So i found the solution so sharing for anyone who finds the same issue in the future. It turns out it was the issue with a Comma in the wrong place.

VBA Code:
Sub Aggregation_Data()
Dim FileNames As Variant, i As Integer, j As Integer
Dim TWB As Workbook, aWB As Workbook



Set TWB = ThisWorkbook

MsgBox ("Enter Files that you wish to import data from")

FileNames = Application.GetOpenFilename(FileFilter:="Excel Filter (*.xlsx), *xlsx", Title:="Open File(s)", MultiSelect:=True)

For i = 1 To UBound(FileNames)

[B]Workbooks.Open FileNames(i), Password:="Password"[/B]

Next i

End Sub
