VBScript Open Excel applicaion and check to see if file is open

I need some help on an IF statement for the following code.

I would like to use a VBScript to open an excel file and execute a macro "RefreshAndEmail" within. This is operating on a file that may or may not already be open by me and is expected to run before I get to work.

If the file is already in use by me, I would like the script to connect to that excel instance. The code I have works if the file is closed, but errors out if the file is already open.

 'Input Excel File's Full Path
   ExcelFilePath = "MyFileAndPath.xlsx"
 'Input Module/Macro name within the Excel File
   MacroPath = "Module1.RefreshAndEmail"
 'Create an instance of Excel
   Set ExcelApp = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
 'Do you want this Excel instance to be visible?
   ExcelApp.Visible = True  'or "False"
 'Prevent any App Launch Alerts (ie Update External Links)
   ExcelApp.DisplayAlerts = False
 'Open Excel File
   Set wb = ExcelApp.Workbooks.Open(ExcelFilePath)
 'Execute Macro Code
   ExcelApp.Run MacroPath
 'Save Excel File (if applicable)
 'Reset Display Alerts Before Closing
   ExcelApp.DisplayAlerts = True
 'Close Excel File
 'End instance of Excel
 'Leaves an onscreen message!
   MsgBox "Your Automated Task successfully ran at " & TimeValue(Now), vbInformation

A couple notes:
The file is in my onedrive and is shared to a few users.
I would like to update the data in the file at 5:00 am every day. I have a windows task scheduled to run the VBScript.
