When building a macro with several steps, all using the Transfer text function, if one of the steps finds the import file empty I would like the macro to either continue automatically or warn the user and allow continue - is that possible?

If coding, it's easier

'    If FileLen("FilePathAndName") > 0 Then

'    End If
