Wildcard for excel files in a folder and sheets within those excel files

7 - Meteor

Hi all,


I'm trying to pick up all the excel files from a folder so I am using a wildcard pickup (\*.xlsx), however, it doesn't look like it can combine with wildcard for picking up sheets within each file.


For example, I am trying to pick up all sheets with a folder with the same template, and all the sheets within those files that have the word "Timesheet" in it.


If anyone has any suggestions it would be appreciated!


Thanks so much,

I think you'll need to create a batch macro to read in all the files, you can filter the sheets with Timesheet in their name.  This post explains it well....
