When I run the following code I get an error. Any suggestions????

The code is:

fname = Application.GetOpenFilename(filefilter:="TEXT FILES (*.TXT), *.TXT")
 

Excel Facts

Which Excel functions can ignore hidden rows?
The SUBTOTAL and AGGREGATE functions ignore hidden rows. AGGREGATE can also exclude error cells and more.

Here is the actual error message:

Run-time error '1004'
Method 'GetOpenFilename' of object '_Application' failed

Here is more code:

Dim fname As Variant
Dim FNUM As Long
Dim SLINE As String
Dim I As Long
Dim RW As Long
fname = Application.GetOpenFilename(filefilter:="TEXT FILES (*.TXT), *.TXT")
If fname <> False Then
FNUM = FreeFile()
Open fname For Input As #FNUM
Do While Not EOF(FNUM)
Line Input #FNUM, SLINE
RW = RW + 1
For I = 1 To Len(SLINE)
Cells(RW, I).Value = Mid(SLINE, I, 1)
Next
Loop

Hmmm. Does it work without the named argument?

fname = Application.GetOpenFilename("TEXT FILES (*.TXT), *.TXT")
