I have an ACCESS 2003 process that, when the user hits the Open button, it opens ALL Excel workbooks that have a particular name pattern.  I can open one, but I need to loop through the folder and open everyone with this pattern.

Private Sub cmdTodaysWorkbook_Click()
'/SS - Opens all workbook created with today's date.
        Dim xlApp As Excel.Application
        Dim wbk As Workbook
        Dim strExistingFileName As String
        Dim fld As Object
        Dim strSource As String

strExistingFileName = "\\SF1\User1\shared\ATMVisalosses\ATMVisaLossesTST_" & Format(Now, "mm-dd-yyyy") & ""

Set xlApp = New Excel.Application
xlApp.Visible = True



    For Each fld In strSource.SubFolders
            Set wbk = xlApp.Workbooks.Open(strExistingFileName & "*.xlsx")
            xlApp.Workbooks.Open (strExistingFileName & "*.xlsx")
    Next

xlApp.WindowState = xlMaximized
Set xlApp = Nothing

End Sub

Yes, it was getting around to the Like statement, I did not think it would work.
