Cells.FormulaR1C1 between workbooks


Board Regular

I'm trying to copy some info from a worksheet to another...

I used a code like this in the same workbook and it works, but how can I get it to work between workbooks?

Sheets("Consulta").Cells(4, 3).FormulaR1C1 = Sheets("BASE").Cells(B, 13)

I thought it would be like
Worksheets("Tarjetas.xls").Sheets("Consulta").Cells(4, 3).FormulaR1C1 = Worksheets("Layout.xls").Sheets("BASE").Cells(B, 13)

But it didn't work.

Thank you

Format cells as date
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+3 to format cells as date. (Shift 3 is the # sign which sort of looks like a small calendar).
