I have an excel file that will always reverence the same cells in another excel file, but the file that is referenced will have a different name & part for different jobs.

 

M:\sales\Assembly\Internal EBZ Worksheets\00\[Doors_V5.xlsx] Path changes

 

Is there a formula that I can use here to use the path above plus this tab & cell "Overview'!$S$14"

 

i have many cells that the tab & cell number do not change, so I have been cutting & pasting the new path & file name into an old link.

Hi @gweak22;,

 

Looks like you are trying to lookup data from different sheet, you and use INDIRECT to get that information.. if are still having issue attach a sample file which will be help to show you in details
