Ok, I have a few hundred work orders done in Excel. Each spread sheet is a seperate file but all are identical in structure (basic order form). I need to change the value in the same cell on all the forms (manager's name needs to be changed on all our forms).

Question: How do I do this without having to open and edit all five thousand forms?


This forum is batting 1000 with all my stupid question. I may have to post up my secret mango salsa recipe......... Yum..

Thanks, YoJeff.

If the workbooks all have one sheet (or the sheet in question is the first sheet no matter what), then replace:

Sheets(1)
For
Sheets("MySheet")

Otherwise, we need some way to identify the sheet - perhaps by a common tab name, or by some cell that is always on the sheet and contains the same value.
