Sub InputBox()
Dim MyTargetFile As Variant
Dim UserInput As Variant
'You can change *.xlsx to *.csv or any other format
MyTargetFile = Application.GetOpenFilename("Excel Files (*.xlsx), *xlsx")
'First open a excel file
Workbooks.Open Filename:=MyTargetFile
'Give a name to the opened excel file
MyOpenedFile = ActiveWorkbook.Name
'Here we are trying to get a file name from user, which we will use when we save a file
UserInput = Application.InputBox(prompt:="Provide a file name to save")
If UserInput <> "" Then
'Save the opened excel file by renaming it , here UserInput is used  as new file name.
Workbooks(MyOpenedFile).SaveAs Filename:=ThisWorkbook.Path & "\" & UserInput
End If
'Close the saved workbook
End Sub



  1. User Input is helpful when you are saving a file, or you want to input a value like date, year, or category etc.
  2. Always handle the condition when the user does not enter any input.
