I have seen some of the other solution here on EE but I don't how to implement them to fit my situation. Here is my code that attempts to look for a file within a specified folder based on county, year, and status. If not found, a message box pops saying "File not found.  Not Created Yet".

I just need to know how to re-arrange the variables I have already set to work with the workaround method for Excel 2007. This file was initially created in Excel 2003.
Sub CheckTargetFile()
   Targetfile1 = "SR_" & cnty & ".txt"
   Dirname1 = "H:\srprod\Data Requests\" & typestudy & "Files\" & year
 
 
   'To make sure that file exists
   With Application.FileSearch
        .NewSearch
        .LookIn = Dirname1
        .Filename = Targetfile1
        If .Execute() = 0 Then
            MsgBox "File not found.  Not Created Yet", vbOKOnly
        Else
            Call Import
        End If
    End With

Where do you define what typestudy and year contain? They both look like variables, but I don't see where you have values being passed into them.

I have attached the code and form that sends the variable values.
Sub Button10_Click()
   If Range("P1").Value = 1 Then
     year = "2000"
   ElseIf Range("P1").Value = 2 Then
     year = "2001"
   ElseIf Range("P1").Value = 3 Then
     year = "2002"
   ElseIf Range("P1").Value = 4 Then
     year = "2003"
   ElseIf Range("P1").Value = 5 Then
     year = "2004"
   ElseIf Range("P1").Value = 6 Then
     year = "2005"
   ElseIf Range("P1").Value = 7 Then
     year = "2006"
   ElseIf Range("P1").Value = 8 Then
     year = "2007"
   End If
 
   If Range("r1").Value < 10 Then
      cnty = "00" & CStr(Range("r1").Value)
   ElseIf Range("r1").Value < 100 Then
      cnty = "0" & CStr(Range("r1").Value)
   Else
      cnty = CStr(Range("r1").Value)
   End If
   
   If Range("T1").Value = 1 Then
     typestudy = "Prelm"
   ElseIf Range("T1").Value = 2 Then
     typestudy = "Study"
   End If
 
   
   Call CheckTargetFile
 
End Sub

Hello angelmtaylor,

FileSearch was dropped from Office 2007.  Instead, try:

If Dir(Dirname1 & "\" & Targetfile1) <> "" Then
    'code for file exists
Else
   'does not exist
End If

Regards,

Patrick
