Excel/Think you have made a mistake
You normally give such good answers I was astounded when you stated that the filesystemobject was not available in Excel 2007 and later. Not only did you say this to one person but to two people. the filesystemobject is in the microsoft scripting runtime - not in excel. It was only after pondering for a while that I realized you were describing the Filesearch object which was deprecated in excel 2007.
.LookIn = "c:\my documents"
.FileType = msoFileTypeExcelWorkbooks
Hopefully you can adjust your answers and provide the correct information. Just a heads up.
Thank you for picking this up - yes, you are of course correct. I do tend to check my own answers for use in similar questions, so I'm hoping this is why I made the same error twice, and I suspect it may have been partly a case of knowing what I needed to say later on - as you know, filesystemobject is the means by which you can achieve some of what filesearch used to do, though not all (I'm still searching for a practical replacement when you need to search for excel files containing a given word or phrase for example!)
