Question
Hi,

I am very much interested in learing VBA, i have requirement for below code to pick all file names from given folder.

Need your help to modify code... Instead of giving entire path in code. i want to give path in excel in the field H2.

Ex:- I will paste path C:\Users\hari\Desktop\Imp Folder in excel H2 column.

Pl. help me.
===============================
Sub Example1()
Dim objFSO As Object
Dim objFolder As Object
Dim objFile As Object
Dim i As Integer

'Create an instance of the FileSystemObject
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
'Get the folder object
Set objFolder = objFSO.GetFolder("C:\Users\hari\Desktop\Imp Folder")


i = 1
'loops through each file in the directory and prints their names and path
For Each objFile In objFolder.Files
   'print file name
   Cells(i + 1, 1) = objFile.Name
   'print file path
   Cells(i + 1, 2) = objFile.Path
   i = i + 1
Next objFile
End Sub




Thanks in advance

Answer
Hariprasad,

Add lines:
Dim s as String
s = Range("H2").Text
 
change
Set objFolder = objFSO.GetFolder("C:\Users\hari\Desktop\Imp Folder")
to
Set objFolder = objFSO.GetFolder(s)


or you could just change
Set objFolder = objFSO.GetFolder("C:\Users\hari\Desktop\Imp Folder")
to
Set objFolder = objFSO.GetFolder(Range("H2").Text)

I incorporated the first approach by adjusting your code with results below:

Sub Example1()
Dim objFSO As Object
Dim objFolder As Object
Dim objFile As Object
Dim i As Integer
Dim s as String
s = Range("H2").Text
'Create an instance of the FileSystemObject
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
'Get the folder object
Set objFolder = objFSO.GetFolder(s)


i = 1
'loops through each file in the directory and prints their names and path
For Each objFile In objFolder.Files
  'print file name
  Cells(i + 1, 1) = objFile.Name
  'print file path
  Cells(i + 1, 2) = objFile.Path
  i = i + 1
Next objFile
End Sub
