Search within closed workbooks

  Asked By: Lu    Date: Jan 04    Category: MS Office    Views: 1093
  

I'm a newbie to VBA so hope this doesn't sound to silly. Is it possible to
search for a word/numbers within closed workbooks? Basically, want to search by
part name within a folder of purchase orders.
I realize this isn't something I could do over night ... willing to put the time
to it, if it's even possible. Any input would be appreciated.

Yes, it is possible.

www.erlandsendata.no/english/index.php?t=envbadac (ADO/DAO as
well as Workbook and Folder Names)

All I can not help you with off hand is the actual searching. But as
long as you can search  in an open workbook, I think you can do the same
in a closed  workbook using ADO.
