Hi,

So I'm trying to do some analysis on historical data from currency pairs, which will include calculating things such as percentage changes, using the histogram feature in data analysis and similar data analysis techniques. However I plan to do this for multiple different currency pairs, probably 15-20 different workbooks in total. All the analysis will be the same for each workbook, it would just be different data for each, is there a way that I can automate it once I have done the first workbook for the rest, just by adding the new data in?

Thanks.

Is there a shortcut key for strikethrough?
Ctrl+S is used for Save. Ctrl+5 is used for Strikethrough. Why Ctrl+5? When you use hashmarks to count |||| is 4, strike through to mean 5.

If the workbook layout (not cell content, but cell dimensions) is identical then you can record your actions for the first workbook and run those actions for the other workbooks. However if your input for one workbook is 12 columns x 60 rows and another is 14 columns x 60 rows then the code will not work. Without knowing how the input workbooks differ, it would not be possible to modify the recorded code to handle those differences.
