I don't know what the problem can be that it can have multiple sources.

Is the Excel file in the same PC with Office? or is the fiel in a sharefolder, Onedrive, ect. ?

In advance if I can recommend you, add a file (without sensitive data) to your project.

Explain your plans in relation to this file. So you can get a solution that is tailored to your needs much faster.

At the same time, it is much easier for someone who wants to help to understand the subject.

A win-win situation for everyone.

Please no Picture, even if it is said that a picture can say a thousand words, it is certainly not in the case of Excel, on the contrary in some cases.


* Knowing the Excel version and operating system would also be an advantage.


Thank you for your understanding and patience
