Hi Kennys,

You can't get an Excel sheet cell value without opening it.

Try this module:

Sub ReplaceHTMLcharacters()
Dim xl As Object
Dim MyVar As String
Set xl = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
xl.Visible = False
xl.Workbooks.Open "C:\Mijn documenten\Computers Question_bestanden\GoodChartMarks.xls"
Set wb = xl.Workbooks("GoodChartMarks.xls")
MyVar = wb.Sheets("Sheet1").Cells(1, 1).Value
xl.Application.Quit
MsgBox (MyVar)
End Sub

Change path and workbook name, and sheet name to your needs and test it.
