Hi,
I have been wondering whether there is a way to name the workbook based on the dynamic cell value ?
Particularly and ideally I would like to have a workbook name which has both: static and dynamic part
for example, the workbook name is something_somewhere_date.xlsx

So I would like that date part to be connected to a cell where I just can put =today()  /or =CONCATENATE("something_somewhere_"&today()/ and the file everyday generates WORKBOOK's name based on current date.

Tried some VBA but none of them really worked for me.
Any help will be appreciated!
Thanks!
