Macro to go into a series of Excel workbooks to make a change

I recently got some help to create a Macro to go into a series of workbooks saved in a certain forder to extract a range of information and create a new workbook with that information extracted - see bottom of message.

What I need to be able to do is similarly go into each workbook, but rather than extracting a range of information, to paste in some additional information or make a change so that say, in worksheet 5, to paste "given text" into cell B4, etc.

Any idea how to do this? Many thanks!



Sub MergeAllWorkbooks()
Dim MyPath As String, FilesInPath As String
Dim MyFiles() As String
Dim SourceRcount As Long, FNum As Long
Dim mybook As Workbook, BaseWks As Worksheet
Dim sourceRange As Range, destrange As Range
Dim rnum As Long, CalcMode As Long

'Fill in the path\folder where the files are
MyPath = "I:\filepath"

'Add a slash at the end if the user forget it
If Right(MyPath, 1) <> "\" Then
MyPath = MyPath & "\"
End If

'If there are no Excel files in the folder exit the sub
FilesInPath = Dir(MyPath & "*.xl*")
If FilesInPath = "" Then
MsgBox "No files found"
Exit Sub
End If

'Fill the array(myFiles)with the list of Excel files in the folder
FNum = 0
Do While FilesInPath <> ""
FNum = FNum + 1
ReDim Preserve MyFiles(1 To FNum)
MyFiles(FNum) = FilesInPath
FilesInPath = Dir()

'Change ScreenUpdating, Calculation and EnableEvents
With Application
CalcMode = .Calculation
.Calculation = xlCalculationManual
.ScreenUpdating = False
.EnableEvents = False
End With

'Add a new workbook with one sheet
Set BaseWks = Workbooks.Add(xlWBATWorksheet).Worksheets(1)
rnum = 1

'Loop through all files in the array(myFiles)
If FNum > 0 Then
For FNum = LBound(MyFiles) To UBound(MyFiles)
Set mybook = Nothing
On Error Resume Next
Set mybook = Workbooks.Open(MyPath & MyFiles(FNum))
On Error GoTo 0

If Not mybook Is Nothing Then

On Error Resume Next

With mybook.Worksheets(5)
Set sourceRange = .Range("A4:H15")
End With

If Err.Number > 0 Then
Set sourceRange = Nothing
'if SourceRange use all columns then skip this file
If sourceRange.Columns.Count >= BaseWks.Columns.Count Then
Set sourceRange = Nothing
End If
End If
On Error GoTo 0

If Not sourceRange Is Nothing Then

SourceRcount = sourceRange.Rows.Count

If rnum + SourceRcount >= BaseWks.Rows.Count Then
MsgBox "Sorry there are not enough rows in the sheet"
mybook.Close savechanges:=False
GoTo ExitTheSub

'Copy the file name in column A
With sourceRange
BaseWks.Cells(rnum, "A"). _
Resize(.Rows.Count).Value = MyFiles(FNum)
End With

'Set the destrange
Set destrange = BaseWks.Range("B" & rnum)

'we copy the values from the sourceRange to the destrange
With sourceRange
Set destrange = destrange. _
Resize(.Rows.Count, .Columns.Count)
End With
destrange.Value = sourceRange.Value

rnum = rnum + SourceRcount
End If
End If
mybook.Close savechanges:=False
End If

Next FNum
End If

'Restore ScreenUpdating, Calculation and EnableEvents
With Application
.ScreenUpdating = True
.EnableEvents = True
.Calculation = CalcMode
End With
End Sub
