    Excel 2010 vba problem

    I've written a routine that loops through .txt files in a directory and reads one line at a time from the files into a row in excel. This code was functional and working, but now for no clear reason it gives me the error message, Run time error '53', File Not Found when trying to open any of the txt files.

    The code has not changed, the path and files have not changed. Doesn't seem to matter what I do, whatever file I try to open I always get that message.

    Could something have changed in the operating system? (I'm running Win7pro.) Any help appreciated.

    What would you have us investigate? No workbook, no code, no text files ...

    You probably used application.filesearch that doesn't exist anymore in Excel 2007 and Excel 2010.
    Use Dir instead.

    Here is the code:

    strPath = "C:\Projects\2010Data\Import\*.txt"
    strFile = Dir(strPath)
    intRow = 1
    Do While strFile <> ""
    Open strFile For Input As #1 (*** Error occurs here ***)
    Do While Not EOF(1)
    Line Input #1, strInput
    Worksheets(1).Cells(intRow, 1).Value = strInput
    Worksheets(1).Cells(intRow, 1).TextToColumns DataType:=xlDelimited, ConsecutiveDelimiter:=False, Comma:=True
    intRow = intRow + 1
    Loop
    Close #1
    strFile = Dir
    Loop

    Your post does not comply with Rule 1 of our Forum RULES. Your post title should accurately and concisely describe your problem, not your anticipated solution. Use terms appropriate to a Google search. Poor thread titles, like Please Help, Urgent, Need Help, Formula Problem, Code Problem, and Need Advice will be addressed according to the OP's experience in the forum: If you have less than 10 posts, expect (and respond to) a request to change your thread title. If you have 10 or more posts, expect your post to be locked, so you can start a new thread with an appropriate title.
    To change a Title on your post, click EDIT then Go Advanced and change your title, if 2 days have passed ask a moderator to do it for you.

    PLEASE PM WHEN YOU HAVE DONE THIS AND I WILL DELETE THIS POST

    Your post does not comply with Rule 3 of our Forum RULES. Use code tags around code. Posting code without them makes your code hard to read and difficult to be copied for testing. Highlight your code and click the # at the top of your post window. For more information about these and other tags, found here
    Hope that helps.
