Why does the follow not identify the file being open?

'Is the SIF_FileCreatorPlus open? If not open, if opened continue.
'Loop through catcode in this file.
Dim OrderFileName As String, isOpen As Boolean
FileLookingFor = "SIF_FileCreatorPlus.xlm [Read-Only]"

On Error Resume Next  '<<turn on error trap
isOpen = False

Windows(FileLookingFor).Activate
If Err.Number = 0 Then
        isOpen = True
        MsgBox ("Yes it is open, use a Goto command to move to proper place in the macro.")
Else
    isOpen = False
    MsgBox ("Nope, not open")
    Workbooks.Open Filename:="C:\_SAP\Extract\SIF_CreatorPlus.xlsm", ReadOnly:=True
    Windows("SIF_CreatorPlus.xlsm").Activate
    Sheets("MasterCopy").Select
    'Start with active cell C2 and move down list
    Range("C2").Select  'Position to collect catcodes
End If
On Error GoTo 0  '<<turn off error trap

to
FileLookingFor = "SIF_FileCreatorPlus.xlsm [Read-Only]"
