Hi

I have 1 file in my computer and source in the local workgroup.
I cant make simple link to the every cell what i need because in the source file user insert rows and my links after that updateing from the wrong cells.
In the both files i have same numbers in the column A and can use some search metod.
I made something like this in vba but maybe i can use some worksheet function?
I explane now what i need or how my macro works.
For examle, i take value from "A5", search same value from source file column A and then take value foundvalue.offset(0,3) from source file and insert this in to the my file "F5".

There are several "lookup functions" in Excel (see Excel Help) so perhaps something liike this is what you need :-
=VLOOKUP(A5,Sheet2!A:D,4,FALSE)
