Activate Workbook minus 1 days

Posted on 2011-09-30

I have some code attached that allows me to activate a spreadsheet that has a date of minus 2 days, i am looking for an amendment. First that it activates the spreadsheet minus 1 day and secondly the name of the spreadsheet changed.

It will always be

Sophis Fiscal ddmmyyyy.xls

So if it can look for the spreadsheet Sophis Fiscal ddmmyyyy.xls which has a date of minus 1 day, that would solve my issue!


Sub ActivateWB()

Dim UseDate As Date

Select Case Weekday(Now)
    Case 1, 4, 5, 6, 7
        UseDate = Date - 2
    Case Else
        UseDate = Date - 4
End Select

Windows("UnmatchedReport_GL_8455_56_57_" & Format(UseDate, "yyyymmdd") & _

End Sub

Seamus - not entirely sure about the logic there, but try this:
Sub ActivateWB()

Dim UseDate As Date

Select Case Weekday(Now)
    Case 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
        UseDate = Date - 1
    Case Else
        UseDate = Date - 3
End Select

Windows("Sophis Fiscal " & Format(UseDate, "yyyymmdd") & ".xls").Activate

End Sub
