Hi Experts,

I'm using "Shell" in VBA to merge multiple CSV Files together but the CMD window isn't closing.
it does the job though and my macro then continues to Import the Merged file.

And how would i make it close automatically?
Sub Test()
Dim comStr as String
comStr = "CMD /k Copy " & Chr(34) & strDir & "\*.csv" & Chr(34) & " " & Chr(34) & "C:\all.txt" & Chr(34)
Call Shell(comStr)
End Sub
