There are a number of problems associated with creating a spreadsheet that works on Apple macs and Windows which can select and open files using a 'open file' dialog box
- Difficulty in creating a fileopen dialog box for macs
- Error 1004 returned when refreshing a queryTable after the filename has been changed
- Writing vba that works on both OSs given the range of functions that are required on one, but generate fatal errors on the other.
The following code provides solutions to most of these problems, opening three text files using tableQueries based on the name of one of the files that is found using a find file dialog box.

Browser specific fileopen dialog box
The following is the Windows version of the code for opening a dialog box for selecting a file
And this is for macs:
The fileopen dialog box on a mac is best implemented with applescript. This script catches errors within the Apple script and returns the error number as text (which always begins with a '-') allowing the calling code to decide what to do. This catches 'errors' such as clicking the cancel button and opening with a directory that does not exist. I was not able to identify detailed error info if I caught the error in the VBA.
Enabling file access on Excel 2016 for macs
In the 2016+ versions of Excel, VBA operates in a sandbox which means that explicit permission has to be granted if any files are to be opened. This is not required if the file has been identified with a appleScript 'fileopen dialog box. For other files this is granted using the GrantAccessToMultipleFiles method. This is wrapped in a method because if it is encountered in code prior to Excel 2016, or on a mac then it throws an untrappable error

Browsing for a filename
This the function called by the 'Browse' button, which calls the OS specific browse subroutine and handles the responses for the mac filedialog, and then goes into common code to see whether the returned value should be placed in the spreadsheet and the query tables loaded using Load_Click
Mac Excel Macros
This method is either called as part of the processing when 'Browse' is clicked, or can be called independently to refresh the files if the names have not changed. It makes use of three queryTables that have already been placed in the appropriate positions in the spreadsheets. The 'Browse' button selects the filename which ends _results.txt which is associated with the first queryTable. The other two filenames are derived from the _results.txt filenames Because they have not been explicietly selected by the user the mac security requires that the user confirms that it is OK to load them.
