Helllo Experts,

I am wondering if the below code could be modified to reference the FILE NAME instead of a Directory?  
As it stands, I have to place the file in a directory and I want to avoid this extra step.

The file will be closed.  thank you.  I assume it would require quite a lot of changes but maybe not.  

Option Explicit
Option Base 1
Sub Get_Singel_Values_Closed_Workbooks()
    Dim fsoObj As Scripting.FileSystemObject
    Dim fsoFolder As Scripting.Folder
    Dim fsoFile As Scripting.File
    Dim rst As ADODB.Recordset
    Dim stCon As String, stSQL As String
    Dim i As Long
     'Instantiate new FSO-objects
    Set fsoObj = New Scripting.FileSystemObject
   'folder name (not the file name):
   Set fsoFolder = fsoObj.GetFolder("C:\Documents and Settings\anjohnson\Desktop\Cashflow\TEST")
     'Instantiate a new Recordset-object which also will be the only ADO-object
     'we use in this sample
    Set rst = New ADODB.Recordset
    For Each fsoFile In fsoFolder.Files
        If fsoFile Like "*.xls" Then
            stCon = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & _
            "Data Source=" & fsoFolder & "\" & fsoFile.Name & ";" & _
            "Extended Properties=""Excel 8.0;HDR=No;IMEX=1"""
            stSQL = "SELECT * From [Sheet1$]"
             'Create/open the connection and execute the SQL-statement.
            rst.Open stSQL, stCon, adOpenForwardOnly, adLockReadOnly, adCmdText
             'Transfer the copied recordset to the activesheet.
            With Application
                .ScreenUpdating = False
                With ActiveSheet
                  .Range("A1").CopyFromRecordset rst
                  ' numbers will be imported as text due to the IMEX setting
                  ' so convert to numbers.
                  With .UsedRange
                     .Value = .Value
                  End With
               End With
                .ScreenUpdating = True
            End With
             'Empty the string-variables and close the connection.
             'By only closing but not setting the rst-variable to nothing we
             'actually use the connection pooling technique.
            stCon = Empty
            stSQL = Empty
        End If
    Next fsoFile
     'Release objects from memory.
    Set fsoFile = Nothing
    Set fsoFolder = Nothing
    Set rst = Nothing
End Sub
