    Hi all,

    I'm trying to create a master spreadsheet that based on a user input, reads every excel file in a certain folder and copies the values of cells b3, e3, e4 and d75 into sheet 2 on the current workbook.

    Basically files are stored in folders by month in the format Nov11, Dec11, Jan12 etc. The user picks month and year from drop down boxes (read as text). So if they pick November and 2011, I want the data from each file in the folder Nov11. The folders are all stored in the same directory as the master file.

    Below is my code...
    Keep getting error message 400 and don't know what it relates to!!.
    Don't know what I'm doing wrong...

    Please help...

    Sub get_data()
    Dim Wb As Workbook
    Dim sFile As String
    Dim Cwb As Workbook
    Dim lrow As Long
    Dim getmonth As String
    Dim getyear As String
    Dim folder As String
    Dim monthyear As String
    getmonth = (Range("d7").Value)
    getyear = (Range("e7").Value)
    monthyear = Left(getmonth, 3) & Right(getyear, 2)
    folder = ThisWorkbook.path & monthyear & "\"
    Set Cwb = ThisWorkbook
    sFile = Dir(folder & "*.xls")
    Do While sFile <> ""
    If sFile <> Cwb.name Then
    On Error Resume Next
    Set Wb = Workbooks.Open(folder & sFile)
    lrow = Cwb.Worksheets("Data").Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
    lrow = lrow + 1
    Cwb.Worksheets("Sheet2").Range("A" & lrow + 3).PasteSpecial xlPasteValues
    Cwb.Worksheets("Sheet2").Range("B" & lrow + 3).PasteSpecial xlPasteValues
    Cwb.Worksheets("Sheet2").Range("C" & lrow + 3).PasteSpecial xlPasteValues
    Cwb.Worksheets("Sheet2").Range("D" & lrow + 3).PasteSpecial xlPasteValues
    Wb.Close True
    End If
    sFile = Dir
    End Sub

    welcome to the forum,

    I see you checked to avoid reading the current workbook.

    Have you tried stepping through the vba code?
    Only error 400 doesn't tell me anything, ahve you checked what the error code stands for/ Help file and error codes.
    I think going throught the code step by step will identify it.

    Debugging is a pain in the a** but sometimes that's the only way.
