VBA Macro Opens Multiple files/Version of the same file


New Member

I have the following Macro:

 '--- Reads File Name from Filenames Worksheet ---'
        Windows(Master).Activate        Sheets("Filenames").Select
        datafile = Range("A" & cntLDC)

'--- Opening File ---'
        Workbooks.Open Filename:= _
        "U:\OPERATIONS\Reports\" & datafile, UpdateLinks:=0

 '--- Get Data ---'
  Windows("" & datafile).Activate
I get Runtime error, subscript out of range on "Get Data" code and I see the macro has opened the same file three times with a number at the end (1, 2 ,3) to denote which file version.

The "Get Data" code is also highlighted yellow as it causes the error. I've run the same macro on multiple files but I get this error on a particular file (All files are in same format)

The file name worksheet only has unique name (no duplicates). Any feedback or fix is highly appreciated.
