VBA Excel 2000 - File existing or not

Dear Experts,

I have a macro which assign a certain file name to a string variable, based on that after it opens it

Dim FileNev As String
Dim FileNevWorkbook As Workbook
FileNev = "D:\PR\Conv " & FileNap & "." & modMilyenHonap & ".xls"
Set FileNevWorkbook = Workbooks.Open(FileNev)

But sometimes it happens that the file does not exist, and the opening attempt brings error. Is there way by VBA to check whether that file exist and if not then bringing a MsgBox instead of the open?

thanks,
Zsolt

Hi,

Please take the below function.

KK,
Public Function FileFolderExists(strFullPath As String) As Boolean
    On Error GoTo EarlyExit
    If Not Dir(strFullPath, vbDirectory) = vbNullString Then FileFolderExists = True
    
EarlyExit:
    On Error GoTo 0

End Function

Open in new window
