    get path of latest file in folder with macro

    hi there,

    Here`s the part of the code I want to change:

    ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets.Add.Name = "Hilfstabelle"

    Range("B1").Select
    ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = _
    "=VLOOKUP('C:\Users\famichalsk\Desktop\ExportSAP[export.XLSX]Sheet1'!R[1]C[10],'C:\Users\famichalsk\Desktop\ExportSAP\
    [export.XLSX]Sheet1'!C[10],1,FALSE)"

    Generally the problem is that the part in beetween the brackets [] should change when you have a file in the specific folder, which has a current date. I already tried to check all the files with:

    ...all the variables...

    strPath = "C:\Users\famichalsk\Desktop\ExportSAP"

    ' Use Microsoft Scripting runtime.
    Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set objFolder = objFSO.GetFolder(strPath)

    ' Check date on each file in folder.
    For Each objFile In objFolder.Files
    If objFile.DateLastModified > varDate Then
    varDate = objFile.DateLastModified
    strName = objFile.Name
    End If
    Next 'objFile

    ...

    and then paste the variable strName in the [] brackets, but it didn`t work out how I actually imagined...


    I hope you could understand the way I explained it and you can figure out where the problem is and how I can solve it.

    Thanks so far,

    Fabian

    What part didn't work out?

    This will concatenate the strName value within the formula.
