I have many different word docs that i am trying to copy data from one spreadsheet into so it would be best if i didnt have to open all the word docs at once. Maybe i should just check if the doc is open and not reopen it every time. How would I do this? Thanks

pls try

Sub Macro()
strPath = "C:\"
FileToOpen = "myFile.docx"

On Error Resume Next
Set wrdApp = GetObject(, "Word.Application")
If wrdApp Is Nothing Then
    Set wrdApp = CreateObject("Word.Application")
    Set wrdDoc = wrdApp.Documents.Open(strPath & FileToOpen)
    Set wrdDoc = wrdApp.Documents(FileToOpen)
    If wrdDoc Is Nothing Then
        Set wrdDoc = wrdApp.Documents.Open(strPath & FileToOpen)
    End If
End If
On Error GoTo 0

With wrdDoc
End With

Set wrdDoc = Nothing
Set wrdApp = Nothing

End Sub

Open in new window
