Hello,

When I convert an excel 2003 workbook to a 2013 workbook, I get the error that "with Application.Filesearch"  is not supported. I found on the web the info that it has been taken out by Microsoft and that you should use the FileSystemObject. I'm having some problems with the correct code. The code I used to use is:

With Application.FileSearch
        .NewSearch
        .LookIn = "L:\TEMP"
         RptName = Range("B6").Value 'VARIABLE PER DAY!!!!
         ComName = RptName & ".TXT"
                .Filename = ComName
            If .Execute > 0 Then 'Workbook exists

                    do some stuff

           Else 'There is Not a File available
            
                    do some stuff
          End If
End With

Open in new window


Could anybody help with alternative code?

Many thanks!!

You don't need FSO just to test for a file's existence.

If Dir("L:\TEMP\" & Range("B6") & ".TXT") <> "" Then
    ' exists
Else
    ' does not exist
End If
