Delete Special Character in all Excel Wookbooks

I have 60 Excel workbooks that have a special character (*) that is part of the cell value in column I that I would like to remove.  The cell  values are ***High*** or ***Med*** or ***Low***. I would loop through all the files in the folder and deleted the special character. Thanks

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Are there multiple worksheets in each workbook, just one, or a specific worksheet to remove the asterisks from?

Modify the folder path to suit...

Sub DeleteAstericks()

    Dim wb As Workbook
    Dim filename As String
    Const FolderPath As String = "C:\PathToFolder\"
    filename = Dir(FolderPath & "*.xlsx")
    Do While filename <> ""
        Set wb = Workbooks.Open(FolderPath & filename)
        wb.Worksheets(1).Range("C:C").Replace "~*", "", xlPart
        wb.Close True
        filename = Dir()
End Sub
