Try this

The Output files should be in a subfolder named "Data" within the folder that the Input file is stored in.

The code will open each workbook in that subfolder & import the data

The code works perfectly on the sample files.  Reading the other question is that creating files for each name in the workbook?

I'm going out for an hour or so but I'll check when I get back.

I think I need to work on your previous question first.

I have  answered your previous question.

This code works for me here, but I think it is unnecessary now that my other code produces the files. Let me know if you need any more help.
