still stuck: get filename from range


R

rroach

I'm new at this. With much help from this forum I've almost finished
major timesaving macro for our lab. But stuck on following problem.
load a list of files that are in a worksheet and do a for-next loop o
them,. Before closing each file I want to save it as an XLS file AND a
a text file. I don't understand VBA syntax well enough to know how t
get the filename for the filesave command.

My code now:
Sub File_Cut_Metrics()

Dim wbList As Workbook
Dim wbDest As Workbook
Dim rcell As Range

Set wbList = Workbooks.Open("G:\newlist2")
For Each rcell I
wbList.Sheets(1).Range("A1").CurrentRegion.Columns(1).Cells
Set wbDest = Workbooks.Open(rcell.Value)

NB: IF I PUT IN \"MSGBOX RCELL\" HERE IT SHOWS THE CORRECT FILENAM

do some stuff

wbDest.Save

WBDEST.SAVEAS FILENAME:=RCELL, FILEFORMAT:=XLTEXT, CREATEBACKUP:=FALSE
NOTE: SUB'ING RCELL.VALUE FOR RCELL ABOVE DOESN'T WORK EITHE

wbDest.Close savechanges:=False
Next

End Sub

What do I need to change to send the right filename to the SaveA
statement?

TIA,

Ro

Rob,

Do your file names on the sheet have .xls at the end?

Perhaps:

Wbdest.SaveAs Filename:=Substitute(RCell.Value, ".xls", ".txt"), FileFormat:=xlText
