Hello everyone,
I have a function that returns the file properties(such as filesize, creation date, modification date) of a file in column A of a excel spread sheet, what I need is to make this function loop trough all the path in column A; I tried to create a loop with some help but right now is giving me this error"Runtime error 5" in the lines where I put the @. Anyone knows how to make this function loop? spread sheet screen shot
Public Function GetFileProperty(myFile As String, myType As String) As String

    'This creates an instance of the MS Scripting Runtime FileSystemObject class
    Set oFS = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

    Select Case UCase(Trim(myFile))
        Case "CREATED"
            GetFileProperty = oFS.GetFile(myFile).DateCreated
        Case "MODIFIED"
            GetFileProperty = oFS.GetFile(myFile).DateLastModified
        Case "ACCESSED"
            GetFileProperty = oFS.GetFile(myFile).DateLastAccessed
        Case "SIZE"
            GetFileProperty = oFS.GetFile(myFile).Size
        Case Else
            GetFileProperty = "txt"
    End Select
End Function

Public Sub SperiamoLoop()
    Dim MyCell As Variant, Rng As Range
    Dim myFile As String, myType As String
    Set Rng = Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A2:A4")
    For Each MyCell In Rng
        If MyCell <> "" Then
           @ myFile = Left(MyCell, InStr(MyCell, "/") - 1)
           @ myType = Mid(MyCell, InStr(MyCell, "/") + 1)
            MyCell.Offset(0, 1) = GetFileProperty(myFile, myType)
        End If
    Next
End Sub
