    Exclamation working with multiple directories with VBA in excel

    I have run into a small problem with a current project I am working on. Bassically what the project will do is open multiple files in multiple directories and reformat some files and combine data between the files to create some reports.

    The problem I am having is that when i go to cycle through the the second set of files while cycling through the first set my code seems to "forget" or lose its place within the first directory it is cycling through.

    Here is all the code from my project.. the problem occurs during "filename = dir()"

    Option Explicit
     '32-bit API declarations

    Alias "SHGetPathFromIDListA" (ByVal pidl As Long, ByVal _

        bInfo.pIDLRoot = 0&
         'Title in the dialog
        If IsMissing(msg) Then
            bInfo.lpszTitle = "Please select the folder of the excel files to copy."
            bInfo.lpszTitle = msg
