Link to a closed Workbook
I want to link some cells of one workbook to another, but don't want to have to open the second workbook everytime. The book I am using talks about the get value function, but says that when creating a worksheet formula you do not need this function, but can simply create a link formula to retrieve a value from a closed file. How do you do this?
I have a very basic understanding of vba but by effective use of sites such as this have managed to paste together some code to create a spreadsheet and reporting functions.
The spreadsheet has records added or updated using a userform either by using the scroll bar or using a find record search.
My problem is that I need to have upto 10 people updating records at the same time(different records) so shared workspace and shared workbook does not suit.
What I would like to do is have the main spreadsheet on a closed workbook.
Use the find process to locate the record in the closed workbook, return it to the userform and then save the updated or new record to the closed workbook.
I have the code to do all of this from the worksheet within the same workbook as the userform but don't know how to link the userform to a closed workbo
I am trying to link to a closed Excel file with this path:
='C:\Documents and Settings\rshuell\Desktop\Weekly
I want to add this to the end of the previous function:
Basically, trying to lookup the value in the last used row of a closed Workbook. Can someone help out?
I have linked to data from another workbook, which I do by just clicking on the cells I want on the other workbook as if it were a different sheet and it fills in the necessary reference info. Usually my spreadsheet will read from the linked workbook even if it's closed. I have one spreadsheet that requires me to open the other workbook. What makes it need to have the linked source open or allow it to stay closed? How can I make this one link with the other workbook closed? I'm using 2007.
Are there certain types of formulas that will pull info out of unopened Excel files?
