Hi Guys,


How do I add the Previous Business day to an Excel File name in a variable string?

eg. In this SelectMatchingWindow File name , I want it to pick up "YY.MM.DD - Daily GMSP Balance Sheet.xlsm"

Sub Macro6()


Filename = SelectMatchingWindow("- Daily GMSP Balance Sheet.xlsm")


  'Sheets("EMEA").Select
   'Windows("10.29.14 - Daily GMSP Balance Sheet.xlsm (sent).xlsx").Activate
    Sheets("EMEA").Select
    Range("A3:M63").Select

Use the workday function, e.g.
dim sFileName as string

sFileName=format(application.WorksheetFunction.workDay(now(),-1),"mm.dd.yy") & "- Daily GMSP Balance Sheet.xlsm"
Filename = SelectMatchingWindow(sFileName)

Open in new window

Just the intrinsic Format function and the current date:

Filename = SelectMatchingWindow(Format(Date, "yy.mm.dd") &  "- Daily GMSP Balance Sheet.xlsm")

Can I suggest you don't use fullstops within the file name? Some virus checkers will take this file as having multiple file extensions so could include a virus.

Thanks
