Retrieve a workbook name and file path:

At some time during VBA coding it may be necessary to retrieve a file name and it's full path. You could use an Inputbox, but you would be asking for problems (typos). The best way to do this is with the "GetOpenFileName" and "GetSaveAsFilename" dialog. This will open the standard Open or Save as dialog and allow you to retrieve the name and full path.

Sub RetrieveFileName()

Dim sFileName As String



	'Show the open dialog and pass the selected _

	file name to the String variable "sFileName"

	

	sFileName = Application.GetOpenFilename

	'They have cancelled.

	If sFileName = "False" Then Exit Sub

	MsgBox sFileName

End Sub

Get the file path and name to save a Workbook as:

Sub ParseSaveAsName()

Dim sFileName As String

	'Show the open dialog and pass the selected file name  

	to the String variable "sFileName" 

	sFileName = Application.GetSaveAsFilename

	

	'They have cancelled 

	If sFileName = "False" Then Exit Sub 

	ThisWorkbook.SaveAs sFileName

End Sub
