    VBA file dialog:- show files without a certain string in filename

    Friends,
    I have the following code which enable me to select xml files from a certain folder.
    Now I want the filedialog to show only those files which do not contain the word 'updated'.
    This would help me to select only those files which are not processed, thereby reducing confusion

    You could create a userform.

    Example:
    userform1.jpg

    When starting the userform filter the names and display in a listbox.
    Select the file and press a button.

    Put the following code inside the userform:

    Hi Dante, many thanks for your suggestion.
    But since I am already using a filedialog, I would want to filter the files in this filedialog only.
    OR
    Do you mean that I should shelve the filedialog and go for the user form instead, as suggested?
