Hi Guys, I've not posted for a couple of years but have a tricky one now. I have searched and can't really find my exact problem.
I have 94 workbooks designed as holiday forms, each sheet is a month and the rows are the days of the month with columns being for holidays taken or extra hours worked.
These all link to a master spreadsheet in another workbook.
I have manually created all the links for April, and wanted to copy the links into a blank sheet, find and replace april with May then paste back into the master spreadsheet, to save me having to recreate all the links everymonth.
Find and replace doesn't work with links, I tried Edit Links but it wants me to select a different workbook whereas I only want to go to a different worksheet within the same book.
Can anyone help?

Find and replace does work with links! Give an example of a link formula that you were trying to do that on.

I've tried it in the same worksheet and in a different one, Glenn...it says it can't find any data to replace and is the worksheet protected which it isn't.

Options I am using for Find and Repleace are

Within: Sheet
Search: by Rows
Look in:Formulas (there is not other option but this)
Thanks

And you were trying to replace "April" with "May", is that it?

Thanks Glenn, it now seems to work within the spreadsheet, rather than copying and pasting into a blank one. Sorry if I wasted your time...but thanks again
