So I am banging my head against a wall because I keep getting the helpful "Error 400" box but obviously its not showing me where my code is failing. What I am essentially trying to do is copy data from one workbook to another by inserting a formula to pull it from one workbook into the other. Can anyone help me out? I think I have just been staring at it too long and cant see the issue. :)

**I have tested for the array formula independently of the below code and can confirm that it works

VBA Code:
Public Sub Update_PLOGs()

'-update files within PLOG's--index/match
'------------->
Dim wkb1 As Workbook
Dim sht1 As Worksheet
Dim wkb2 As Workbook
Dim sht2 As Worksheet
Dim wkb3 As Workbook
Dim sht3 As Worksheet
Dim wkb4 As Workbook
Dim sht4 As Worksheet


Set wkb1 = ThisWorkbook
Set wkb2 = Workbooks.Open(ThisWorkbook.Path & "\plogs\PLOG - Alpenrose - * - (DAI).xlsb")
Set wkb3 = Workbooks.Open(ThisWorkbook.Path & "\plogs\PLOG - Alta Dena - * - (DAI).xlsb")
Set wkb4 = Workbooks.Open(ThisWorkbook.Path & "\plogs\PLOG - Clover - * - (DAI).xlsb")

Set sht1 = wkb1.Sheets("Cost Change Tracker")
Set sht2 = wkb2.Sheets("WFM PLOG")
Set sht3 = wkb3.Sheets("WFM PLOG")
Set sht4 = wkb4.Sheets("WFM PLOG")

    '------Update Alpenrose----adjust this range if items are added or removed from PLOG
    sht2.Range("FH2").FormulaArray = "=INDEX('[Monthly Milk Cost Tracker v2.0.xlsb]Cost Change Tracker'!$A$1:$CF$165,MATCH(1,(LEFT(FH1,2)='[Monthly Milk Cost Tracker v2.0.xlsb]Cost Change Tracker'!$CF$1:$CF$165)*(B2='[Monthly Milk Cost Tracker v2.0.xlsb]Cost Change Tracker'!$C$1:$C$165),0),MATCH(CONCAT(UPPER(TEXT(DATE(2015,MONTH(TODAY())+1,1),""mmmm"")),"" Delivered / FOB Case Cost""),'[Monthly Milk Cost Tracker v2.0.xlsb]Cost Change Tracker'!$A$1:$CF$1,0))"
    sht2.Range("FH2:FH13").FillDown
    sht2.Range("FH2:FH13").Copy
    sht2.Range("FH2:FH13").PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues

    sht2.Range("IK2:IK13").Value = "COST: Cost Change as part of monthly federal milk order update."

Will the fill handle fill 1, 2, 3?
Yes! Type 1 in a cell. Hold down Ctrl while you drag the fill handle.

After your Dim statements put in the code

VBA Code:
On Error Goto ErrorTrap

Then just before End Sub put in

VBA Code:
Exit Sub
:ErrorTrap
msgbox Err.Description

This will tell you how the code was failing.

If you still cannot work it out from that, put a break in the code at the first Set statment. Then using F9 step through. That will tell you where it is failing.

ok i put that in, much more helpful; thanks! Now it reads "Method open of object workbooks failed"

so i changed my code to this but it still gives the same error:

VBA Code:
Public Sub Update_PLOGs()

'-update files within PLOG's--index/match
'------------->
Dim wkb1 As Workbook
Dim sht1 As Worksheet
Dim wkb2 As Workbook
Dim sht2 As Worksheet
Dim sFound2 As String

On Error GoTo ErrorTrap

Set wkb1 = ThisWorkbook
sFound2 = Dir(ThisWorkbook.Path & "\plogs\PLOG - Alpenrose - * - (DAI).xlsb")    'the first one found
If sFound2 <> "" Then
    Workbooks.Open (ThisWorkbook.Path & "\" & sFound2)
End If

'Set sht1 = wkb1.Sheets("Cost Change Tracker")
'Set sht2 = wkb2.Sheets("WFM PLOG")


    '------Update Alpenrose----adjust this range if items are added or removed from PLOG
    sht2.Range("FH2").FormulaArray = "=INDEX('[Monthly Milk Cost Tracker v2.0.xlsb]Cost Change Tracker'!$A$1:$CF$165,MATCH(1,(LEFT(FH1,2)='[Monthly Milk Cost Tracker v2.0.xlsb]Cost Change Tracker'!$CF$1:$CF$165)*(B2='[Monthly Milk Cost Tracker v2.0.xlsb]Cost Change Tracker'!$C$1:$C$165),0),MATCH(CONCAT(UPPER(TEXT(DATE(2015,MONTH(TODAY())+1,1),""mmmm"")),"" Delivered / FOB Case Cost""),'[Monthly Milk Cost Tracker v2.0.xlsb]Cost Change Tracker'!$A$1:$CF$1,0))"
    sht2.Range("FH2:FH13").FillDown
    sht2.Range("FH2:FH13").Copy
    sht2.Range("FH2:FH13").PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues
    sht2.Range("IJ2:IJ13").Value = Date
    sht2.Range("IK2:IK13").Value = "COST: Cost Change as part of monthly federal milk order update."
   
    
'    wkb1.Save
'    wkb2.Save
'    wkb1.Close True

Try using this format of open

Workbooks.Open Filename:=PathName & Filename

See if it makes a difference.
