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?

Lock one reference in a formula
Need 1 part of a formula to always point to the same range? use $ signs: $V$2:$Z$99 will always point to V2:Z99, even after copying

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.
