    :) Good Day Moderator,
    just got to the core... I've problem to open an excel workbook which contain macros from visual basic at run-time. Thats it, I don't know what properties or method that I should used.

    For your illustration, perhaps I should write some of them in here ( hope you don't getting bored with this ) :)

    dim strFile as String
    dim objExcel as Excel.Application

    strFile = InputBox("Please input your excel file full path :","C:\")

    Set objExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application")

    With objExcel
    .DisplayAlerts = False
    .Workbooks.Open strFile

    MsgBox "Your name is : " & .ActiveSheet.Range("D1")

    .ActiveWorkbook.Close False
    End With

    While trying to process the Msgbox's function, it said that "Object variable or With block variable not set", just like if the object has not successfully created.

    Do you have any idea with this ? I really don't know what to do.
    Thanks a lot for your help and have a nice day :)

    Best Regards.

    I don't claim to do VBA, but I dabble.

    In the first place, if you are creating this code in an Excel file, I don't think you need to declare Excel as the application at all.

    I think you should be creating a workbook object and not an application object.

    I just tried it out, and I get that darn Error 429, but I think that's better than what you're getting.
