Hi

I have a list of numbers in a spreadsheet;

50000
50001
50002
etc

These numbers refer to filenames in a directory S:\invoices\50000.xls etc etc

Can I get excel to look in that directory and open all of the files listed above?
 

Excel Facts

Which lookup functions find a value equal or greater than the lookup value?
MATCH uses -1 to find larger value (lookup table must be sorted ZA). XLOOKUP uses 1 to find values greater and does not need to be sorted.

If these are files you will access often, could you save the "workspace"?

When opening the workspace, I believe it will open up the Excel documents you were working on when you saved the workspace.
