Hi Danie,

Dian here from IMDH. Hope you are well?

I was wondering if you could help with the following query please.

At the moment my code below works well when I have files only in the main folder called
"E:\Dian\Test". (Reads only files copied in the main folder (MyPath) but not the files in
the subfolder)

My question is how do I change/add to my existing code to include a loop to include

searching through SubFolders, within the E:\Dian\Test folder, for .xlsx files starting with
the name "out_*"

You will see I added the question in inverted commas (in green) in the code below.

Keep in mind my programming skills are not very good.

Thank you :)
