Experts,

I have a folder which contains multiple spreadsheets each with two tabs.  The spreadsheets were created in SAS and exported to Excel.  If I have a macro which formats the spreadsheets, can someone tell me how I can go through the directory in VB and format each spreadsheet?

The name of each spreadsheet begins with "Table_"
 and the two respective tabs to be formatted end with " _new"  and " _all " respectively

HI,

pls try

Sub macro3()
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set fDialog = Application.FileDialog(msoFileDialogFolderPicker)
With fDialog
    .Title = "Select the folder"
    If .Show = True Then
        FolderName = .SelectedItems(1)
    Else
        MsgBox "No Folder selected!", vbOKOnly, "File Export"
        Exit Sub
    End If
End With
Set ObjFolder = fso.GetFolder(FolderName)
On Error GoTo 0
If IsEmpty(ObjFolder) Then
    MsgBox "Folder not valid"
    Exit Sub
End If

Set ObjFiles = ObjFolder.Files
For Each ObjFile In ObjFiles
    If ObjFile.Name Like "Table_*.xls*" Then
        Workbooks.Open (FolderName & "\" & ObjFile.Name)
        For Each sh In ActiveWorkbook.Sheets
            If sh.Name Like "*_new" Or sh.Name Like "*_all" Then
                ' YourCode
            End If
        Next
        ActiveWorkbook.Save
        ActiveWorkbook.Close
