Trying to run a for each loop on an external workbook with variable number of sheets.

for each wkSht in Workbooks(startFolder).Worksheets
  msgbox("TEST")
next

Open in new window


Not sure why it won't work. startFolder is my absolute path to the workbook, as in C:/book.xls

Still new to VBA and I know this is simple. Please help!

Thanks!

Try this

Sub Sample()
    Dim wb As Workbook
    Dim wkSht As Worksheet
    
    Set wb = Workbooks.Open("C:\MyFile.xls")
    For Each wkSht In wb.Worksheets
      MsgBox wkSht.Name
    Next
End Sub

Open in new window

That works, but is there a way to do this without having to actually open the workbook?

Thanks!

No that I know of... AFAIK, You have to open the workbook.
