Need Excel macro to open all files in specific folder that have a Created Date of the current system date

I need an Excel macro that looks in a specific folder, and then opens any/all Excel files that were created on whatever the current date is.

Thanks!!!

Try this.
Select a folder when asked, and all Excel files in the folder from current day are opened.

Option Explicit

Sub OpenExcelFilesFromToday()
Dim Folder As String, FileToOpen As String
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    Folder = SelectFolder("Select Folder")
    If Folder = vbNullString Then
        MsgBox "No Folder Selected, Program Stop"
        End
    End If
    
    FileToOpen = Dir(Folder + "\*.xls*")
    Do While FileToOpen <> ""
        If DateValue(FileDateTime(Folder + "\" + FileToOpen)) = DateValue(Now) And FileToOpen <> ThisWorkbook.Name Then
            Application.EnableEvents = False
                Application.Workbooks.Open Filename:=Folder + "\" + FileToOpen
            Application.EnableEvents = True
        End If
        FileToOpen = Dir
    Loop
End Sub

Function SelectFolder(Title As String) As String
    Dim V As Variant
    With Application.FileDialog(msoFileDialogFolderPicker)
        .Title = Title
        .Show
        On Error Resume Next
        Err.Clear
        V = .SelectedItems(1)
        If Err.Number <> 0 Then
            V = vbNullString
        End If
    End With
    SelectFolder = CStr(V)
End Function

Hi,  the following subroutine - along with a userform that will let you browse and locate a specific folder - will open all the Excel files (*.xls*) in that folder whose creation date is the current (today's) date.
Sub Open_Current_Files()
    Dim fso, fld As Object
    Dim strPath, strFile As String
    Dim wbk As Workbook
    Dim dtCreationDate As Date
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False

    frmGetFileXLS.Show
    If Not (boolGotFile) Then Exit Sub
    strPath = frmGetFileXLS.txtPath

    Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set fld = fso.GetFolder(strPath)

    strFile = Dir(strPath & "\*.xls*")
    
    Do While strFile <> ""
        Set wbk = Workbooks.Open(Filename:=strPath & "\" & strFile, UpdateLinks:=0, AddToMRU:=False)
        dtCreationDate = wbk.BuiltinDocumentProperties("Creation Date")
        If Round(dtCreationDate, 0) <> Round(Now(), 0) Then
            wbk.Close savechanges:=False
        End If
        strFile = Dir
    Loop
 End Sub

Open in new window


I've attached an example file that will run this; just click the macro button, browse to the folder, click any Excel file, then click OK to begin.  It will open each file in the folder, but close those with creation dates earlier than the current date, leaving the rest open.

Regards,
-Glenn

Ack...slow on the draw.  Should have refreshed before posting.  Cool to see another method applied, however.
