Here is some code using the FileDialog object to select an Excel workbook for further processing:

Public Function SelectFile() As String
'Requires Office XP (2002) or higher
'Requires a reference to the Microsoft Office Object Library

On Error GoTo ErrorHandler

   Dim fd As Office.FileDialog
   Dim varSelectedItem As Variant
   Dim strFileNameAndPath As String
   
   'Create a FileDialog object as a File Picker dialog box.
   Set fd = Application.FileDialog(msoFileDialogFilePicker)
   
   With fd
      'Set AllowMultiSelect to True to allow selection of multiple files
      .AllowMultiSelect = False
      .Title = "Browse for File"
      .ButtonName = "Select"
      .Filters.Clear
      .Filters.Add "Documents", "*.xlsx; *.xlsm", 1
      .InitialView = msoFileDialogViewDetails
      If .Show = -1 Then
         'Get selected item in the FileDialogSelectedItems collection
         'Have to use collection even if just one item is selected
         For Each varSelectedItem In .SelectedItems
            strFileNameAndPath = CStr(varSelectedItem)
         Next varSelectedItem
      Else
         Debug.Print "User pressed Cancel"
         strFileNameAndPath = ""
      End If
   End With
   
   SelectFile = strFileNameAndPath
   
ErrorHandlerExit:
   Set fd = Nothing
   Exit Function

ErrorHandler:
   MsgBox "Error No: " & Err.Number _
      & " in SelectFile procedure; " _

I got the code to work below but I would like to use a wild card (*) for any Excel file in the SP Folder. There will always only be one Excel file in the SP Folder.

On Error GoTo errHere
 
Dim strQRY As String
 
Dim strHTTP As String
Dim strFileToSave As String
 
strHTTP = "https://asfr.hhh.net/OF/OFSPO/hhsfmg/mwwg/Data%20Call%20%20DDA/2016%20September%20DDA%20Data%20Call.xlsx"
strFileToSave = "C:\Users\shieldsco\Documents\Vince.xlsx"
 
If fnDownloadHTTP(strHTTP, strFileToSave) = False Then      ' -- downlaod the file
    MsgBox "File DL failed. Make sure folder exist"
    GoTo ExitHere
End If
 
MsgBox "All files downloaded"
 
ExitHere:
    Exit Sub
errHere:
    MsgBox "Error"
    Resume ExitHere
