Dear Experts:

below macro checks if a file exists in a specific folder.

I would like to expand the macro to accomodate the following requirement.

If the file is found, the macro is to further check whether a specific sheet by the name 'Overall_List' is present in the workbook.

If not, the macro is to say so and the macro is to abort.

Help is much appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.

Regards, Andreas

Sub File_Exist_With_Dir()
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    Dim FilePath As String
    FilePath = ""
    On Error Resume Next
       FilePath = Dir("C:\MyFolder\MyDocuments\Isele\ProductList.xlsx")
    On Error GoTo 0
    If FilePath = "" Then
        MsgBox "File doesn't exist", vbInformation, "File not found"
        Exit Sub
        MsgBox "File exist", vbInformation, "File exists"
        Call MyNewFile
    End If
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
End Sub

Sub MyNewFile()

MsgBox ("hello")

End Sub
