Formulas And Functions Between Workbooks

0

 I am working on a formular which pulls information from one workbook to another. How can I make the SHEETS to automatically change when the formular is dragged through the cells of workbook where the formula is set?

The formular is as stated below:

='[Yearlyexpenses.xls]Sheet1'!$B$4.

So, how can I make Sheet1 to autmatically change to subsequent Sheets?

Please don't use all caps in your title - that means you are YELLING AT US!

I don't believe that is possible. However, you can use Find & Replace to change the reference in all formulas on a sheet in one go.

The answer below extracts the same cell from a number of sheets into one column of a new worksheet. My above suggestion applies if you wish to copy various cells from from various sheets to various sheets using the same formula. Your question wasn't clear in this regard. So you have answers for both cases. :-)

Aldrin, try this:

=INDIRECT("Sheet"&ROW(A1)&"!$B$4")

Just copy this down and it will return the value from cell B4 from as many sheets as you need it to.Test this in your own workbook before you try to do it across separate files.

Hope this helps :)

To add the workbook reference to Cappymer's formula, do it like this:
=INDIRECT("'[Yearlyexpenses.xls]Sheet"&ROW(A2)&"'!$A$1")
