I have 2 workbooks and I want to connect both. In the 1st one, I want E13 = the value in A2 from the 2nd one.
I'm using this function
=INDIRECT("'C:\Users\lab9\Desktop\Plastic Rules\Calculations\[Cutter Calculations.xlsx]In'!$A$2")
How to increment the cell number ,i.e., how to change from A2 to A4, A6 .. A44 when dragging down??
Thanks
 

Excel Facts

Links? Where??
If Excel says you have links but you can't find them, go to Formulas, Name Manager. Look for old links to dead workbooks & delete.

Give more examples. At the moment you've only given one,.
This is what it looks like so far.
A2 to A4
A6... ???? could be anything
as far down as A44

More examples required like the "A2 to A4" one.

Try this

Replace the formula that has A2 in it with this and copy/drag down
=INDIRECT("'C:\Users\lab9\Desktop\Plastic Rules\Calculations\[Cutter Calculations.xlsx]In'!$A"&(ROWS($1:1)-1)*2+2)
