I am having a Strange situation which I was hoping someone could explain why it is occurring. I am trying to use a simple macro variable to count from 1 to 57 in order to import 57 files.
I initially was given files with the name "Simple_toothhistory_1" "Simple.....2" etc.
I used the variable j and had a working macro using "C:\location\Simple_toothhistory_&j..csv"
An issue was found with the files and they were re-converted into csv files with a new name "Prac1_simple_toothhistory" "Prac2_....."
I tried to use the macro"C:\location\Prac&j_simple_toothhistory..csv"
but with no luck. I also tried adding an additional underscore "C:\location\Prac_&j_simple_toothhistory..csv"
But this also did not work.
I have at this point renamed all 57 files But I was hoping to understand why it is working at the end but not within the file name!

Add a period after the &J -> otherwise the compiler doesn't know where your macro variable name ends, so it won't resolve properly.
ie you see:
the compiler sees:
Note the double period before the CSV name. One of those was for the macro variable to resolve properly but you didn't move it with the macro variable.
