copy a docm-file from a fixed folder location into the folder of the currently active workbook using VBA

Dear Experts:

I would like to copy a Word-File named 'TecDataSheet.docm' from 'M:\General\MyFolder\TecDataSheet.docm' into the folder of the currently open excel file.

That is …
… if the excel file from which the macro is activated, happens to reside in the folder C:\MyDocuments\.. the macro has to copy the above file (TecDataSheet.docm) from M:\General\MyFolder\TecDataSheet.docm into this folder (C:\MyDocuments\..)

Help is much appreciated. Thank you very much in advance. Regards, Andreas

Hi Andreas, I take it that (C:\MyDocuments\..) means C:\MyDocuments or any sub folder within it.
If so, I think this should do it
Sub CopyDocFile()
    If InStr(1, ThisWorkbook.Path, "C:\MyDocuments\", vbTextCompare) = 1 Then
        FileCopy "M:\General\MyFolder\TecDataSheet.docm", ThisWorkbook.Path & "\TecDataSheet.docm"
    End If
End Sub

Open in new window

Hi Graham,

I may have not been very clear in my requirements, sorry. This C:\MyDocuments is just an example, it could be any folder in any drive where the currently open workbook is located. Therefore your code, regrettably is of no use to me. However, It could come in handy in other circumstances. Anyhow, thank you very much for your great support. :-)
