Hi,

 

So the company I work for use SharePoint to store all administrator things like Invoices which are done on Excel so every month we have to update the dates on the invoices which we have to do for each invoice one by one with 90+ invoices to change manually, I wanted to improve this system by having a single master spreadsheet that you would have to change that would link to all of the invoices and change the dates although as I had set this all up and gave it a test run it comes up with an error saying.

 

'Sorry, we couldn't open 'FILE PATH'.

 

And also,

 

'Microsoft Excel cannot access the file 'FILE PATH'.

 

The formula I used to link the invoice workbook and the master workbook together is:

='FILE PATH [Invoice Master Spreadsheet.xlsx]Sheet1'!$M$14

 

Please help!
