Dear Experts,

Could you please advise how to write a check in VBA, which would analyse the active workbook name whether the file name contains characters "OVD"?

So for example if the file name is "OVD_0922.xlsx" in that case the answer is True, if "Book1.xls" in that case False.

thanks,

Something like this perhaps.

If ActiveWorkbook.Name Like "*OVD*" Then
   MsgBox "The active workbook had OVD in it's name
End If

Msgbox Instr(1, activeworkbook.name, "OVD", vbtextcompare) > 0

Open in new window

for example.
