VBA – Test if Workbook is Open by Workbook Name
Test if Workbook s Open
Here is some real basic code for testing if a workbook is currently open by testing for a workbook’s name, not the fully qualified name including the path.
I was writing code in a spreadsheet that altered sheets in another workbook, and wanted to make sure workbook 2 was open before the code executed in workbook 1.
Dim wb As Workbook
For Each wb In Workbooks
'replace between the quotes with workbook to test for
If wb.Name = "New Microsoft Excel Worksheet.xls" Then
MsgBox "Found it"
Exit Sub 'call code here, we'll just exit for now
