Can i Use the same code for HM version  12 too?

Is there a code to open file(.inp) location via directories specified by the user? (to take in the directory as a string and pass it on to a pointer to locate it)

Also how to enter the contents (node co ordintes, distances, and angle) into a excel sheet, whose directory is given by the user(as it changes time to time)?
