Hi All,

I am opening a file in my VBA procedure and assigning the filename to a string variable - sFileName.

How do I create a Define in VBA which will allow me to enter the Define as a cell eg =sFileName

Thanks

What do you mean by a 'Define'?

If you wanted to put the filename in a cell on a worksheet you could use this.
Sheets("Sheet1").Range("B2").Value = sFileName

Open in new window

Yes, you're right. I think I overcomplicated the solution. Once I've got the filename then I can display it in whatever cell I want.
Thanks for the clarity.
