Hi,

I have a file called

Call_Report_June_2014.xlsx

next month it will be

Call_Report_July_2014.xlsx

It will be ran on the 01/08/2014


Can i get some code that recognises the last month, so on 01/08/2014 - it will seek file name

Call_Report_July_2014.xlsx

on the 01/09/2014 it will seek file name

Call_Report_September_2014.xlsx


Many thanks

Hi,

pls try

thedate = Date - 10 ' 10 instead of 1 as security for holidays
strFile = "Call_Report_" & StrConv(Format(thedate, "MMMM_YYYY"), vbProperCase) & ".xlsx"

Regards
