    Macro to find a partial name of file, copy info and paste it in another workbook

    Hi
    I have been asked to write a macro that automatically copies data from one worksheet and pastes it into another one. It's supposed to look for the beginning of a name not a whole one (ex Budget instead of Budget2014). I was told to possibly use a left function somewhere in there but I'm lost.

    Thanks

    Here's a good step-by-step guide on the .Find Method

    Search for your keyword followed by a wild card e.g. "Budget" & "*"
    Surround your VBA code with CODE tags e.g.;
    [CODE]your VBA code here[/CODE]
    The # button in the forum editor will apply CODE tags around your selected text.
