Hello
I have recently started using Excel 2007 as I develop a project, based on a 2003 version, so some files are in 2003 and others in 2007. When I open one of the files(in 2007), call it FILEA, from which i run macros, I update the links (to a 2003 file), and save the updated file. Then when I run a macro from FILEA, it opens some other files (not linked), and, bizarrely, the values in FILEA, which I've just updated and saved, go back to their old values. How can this be possible!? Does anyone have any solution ideas. (I've installed SP1 for 2007, but not yet SP2).

VLOOKUP to Left?
Use =VLOOKUP(A2,CHOOSE({1,2},$Z$1:$Z$99,$Y$1:$Y$99),2,False) to lookup Y values to left of Z values.
