Hi,

I run an identical report every day of the week and house the individual files all in the same folder. each spreadsheet is identical with the exception of the name (the date changes)

Rather than open each one and manually link them Im trying to build the cell reference including the location and reference them all in one go but its proving difficult..

If I know the file path, and the range how can I build a formula to reference the sheets? normally Id use an indirect to build the formula but indirect doesnt work with closed files..

any ideas?

thanks

J
