Excel-VBA : Open a Excel File using Another Excel File using Browse Option.

This tutorial will teach you how to Open a Excel File using Another Excel File using Browse Option. We will be using Application.GetOpenFile() function to accomplish this.

NOTE: You can define any type file you want to , just set the proper filter.

FileFilter:="Excel Files *.xls* (*.xls*) - to open Excel files

FileFilter:="Excel Files *.txt* (*.txt*) - To open Text File

NOTE :Do not provide any filter if you want to select any type of file as attachment

Complete Code:

Sub browse()
Dim FSO As Object
Dim blnOpen
strFileToOpen = Application.GetOpenFilename(Title:="Please choose a file to open", _
FileFilter:="Excel Files *.xls* (*.xls*),")
If strFileToOpen = False Then
MsgBox "No file selected.", vbExclamation, "Sorry!"
Exit Sub
Sheet1.Range("G5").Value = strFileToOpen
Workbooks.Open Filename:=strFileToOpen
End If
End Sub
