Excel VBA – Check if your workbook exist or not?

Before opening your workbook, you will need to verify if the workbook exists or not, so that it won’t return error or the VBA will stop improperly.

If the workbook exists, it will return “TRUE“.

If the workbook doesn’t exist, it will return “FALSE“.

Function DoesWorkBookExist(ByVal wbPath As String, ByVal WBName As String) As Boolean

Dim i As Integer
Dim FileCheck As String

FileCheck = wbPath & “\” & WBName

If Dir(FileCheck) <> “” Then
‘MsgBox (“Workbook – ” & wbName & ” exists”)
DoesWorkBookExist = True
Else
‘MsgBox (“Workbook – ” & wbName & ” doesn’t exist”)
DoesWorkBookExist = False
End If

End Function
