Hi All,

Is there a VBA method which will return me a string containing just the file name and not the full file path ?

Thanks

here it is

Sub test()
Dim f As String, OpenMsg As String, FileName As String

f = Application.GetOpenFilename(Title:="Select  File")


If f = "False" Then Exit Sub


FileName = Dir(f, vbDirectory)

MsgBox FileName

End Sub

Open in new window
