I have a file path

H:\Asset Services MI\BSS PACK\ASSET SERVICES\2011\11 NOVEMBER\Corporate Actions

11 NOVEMBER is the part that changes, next month will be 12 DECEMBER then 01 JANUARY etc

I have a sub below, that will open the most recent file in a folder, but i need to adapt it for the above


Sub CorporateActions()
Dim sPath As String, sNew As String
Dim oFSO As Object, oFile As Object, oFldr As Object
Dim DT As Date

Set oFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
sPath = "G:\Asset Services MI\BSS PACK\ASSET SERVICES\2011\Corporate Actions\" & Format(Date, "mmmm") & "\CORPORATE ACTIONS\"
Set oFldr = oFSO.getfolder(sPath)

For Each oFile In oFldr.Files
    If oFile.DateCreated > DT Then
        sNew = oFile.Path
        DT = oFile.DateCreated
    End If
Next oFile

Workbooks.Open sNew
End Sub
