    Re: matching row number value with part of file name

    The Mid() function has three (arguments) parameters
    * The string to extract the sub-string from
    * the starting position and
    * the number of characters to return

    Notice that in your code: Mid(cells(I, 1),0, 8)
    you are trying to start at position zero in the string; that's an error. the number must be one or larger; but it can't be larger than the actual length of the test string.

    substring = MID(teststring, starting position, num chars to fetch)
