This is my current formula

=+'C:\BVPM\SHARE\FORECAST\Forecast Summary\FY07\[Forecast Change Summary 10-04-06.xls]07_Summary'!$M$6

I need to have the ability to change 10-04-06 using a cell reference point. for example 10-04-06 will change to 10-11-06, etc....

How can I change the formula to reference Cell A1 which will have the reference date.
 

Excel Facts

Show numbers in thousands?
Use a custom number format of #,##0,K. Each comma after the final 0 will divide the displayed number by another thousand

You can use the Indirect function to construct references including the contents of cells however the standard Excel function does not work on external files unless they are open.

I believe there is an Indirect function included in the Morefunc add-in that does work with external files though.

Have a look here:
