I'm using the code below to rename two files. It rnames the first file and then locks the application. What is missing? Thanks

Private Sub Command0_Click()


'Rename CPB Excel Spreadsheet
folder = "\\cdc\project\OD_FMO_Share\AP Stat\Current Month CPB\"
MyFile = Dir$(folder & "*APStat*" & ".*")

 Do While MyFile <> ""
    currentFile = folder & MyFile
    newFile = folder & "APStat_CPB_Final.xls"
    Name currentFile As newFile
Loop
   


'Rename TIIPB Excel Spreadsheet
folder = "\\cdc\project\OD_FMO_Share\AP Stat\Current Month TIIPB\"
MyFile = Dir$(folder & "*APStat*" & ".*")
Do While MyFile <> ""
    currentFile = folder & MyFile
    newFile = folder & "APStat_TIIPB_Final.xls"
    Name currentFile As newFile
Loop


End Sub

You need to add:

MyFile = Dir$()

to the loop to pickup the next file name:

'Rename CPB Excel Spreadsheet
folder = "\\cdc\project\OD_FMO_Share\AP Stat\Current Month CPB\"
MyFile = Dir$(folder & "*APStat*" & ".*")

 Do While MyFile <> ""
    currentFile = folder & MyFile
    newFile = folder & "APStat_CPB_Final.xls"
    Name currentFile As newFile
    MyFile = Dir$()
Loop
   


'Rename TIIPB Excel Spreadsheet
folder = "\\cdc\project\OD_FMO_Share\AP Stat\Current Month TIIPB\"
MyFile = Dir$(folder & "*APStat*" & ".*")
Do While MyFile <> ""
    currentFile = folder & MyFile
    newFile = folder & "APStat_TIIPB_Final.xls"
    Name currentFile As newFile
    MyFile = Dir$()
Loop
