Hi,

I have an accounting software that produces reports. The software will name the excel reports for each store by their name and then add the version of each report. So for example, it will generate Store1_ver_1 today and tomorrow it will generate Store1_ver_2.

The goal of the macro will be to copy both versions for a store in a new excel file, in separate tabs. Version 2 would be in the tab called "Latest" and Version 1 would be in the tab called "Previous" of the same file.

I plan on creating a path on my computer and adding these 2 reports in that folder, run the macro, rinse and repeat for each store. I will be doing this for each store independently.

The problem is that, the version can be random example: version 6(latest) vs 4(previous). Another challenge is that the Store number can change, BUT at least the file names always end with "ver_x".

Can anyone help?

Thx
