    Information in ".Caption" from menu item

    The code below creates menu items. When clicked, .OnAction is used to call the macro (which opens a file).
    I have a variable number of files but only want to use the one procedure.
    How can I transfer the information stored in .Caption to Sub OpenFileNominal.

    If a filename has a dot (.) in it, it won't work though.

    It should work, provided you are including the extension in the file name.

    Yes, that's true but is it possible to show the caption without the extension.
