Dim fDialog As FileDialog
Dim varFile As Variant

SavePath = "\\Path\to\share\Directory\"
 
 
 
'Set up the File Dialog
Set fDialog = Application.FileDialog(msoFileDialogFilePicker)
 
With fDialog
    'Do not Allow user to select multiple files
    .AllowMultiSelect = False
 
    'Set the title of the Dialog box
    .Title = "Please select the file you want to move"

The error is: "User-defined type not defined."
You need to set a reference to the Microsoft Office library

Also the code appears to be looking for PDF files instead of Excel fines (Line 30)

go to this folder

C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\microsoft shared\OFFICE14

and see if you have the file MSO.dll
