I have a situation where I have inherited a mess from previous leadership. We currently have multiple folders with information listed and I am trying to write a specific lookup sheet to draw information. I have tried vlookup, lookup, index/match, xlookup(there is no link with 365) and can not seem to get the correct information to populate. One folder is updated as sales continue and is not in any particular order, giving searching harder. The other folders contain information on serial numbers but I need an identifier from a separate folder. Is there a VBA or formula that I can use per cell to draw information from a closed sheet, or a sheet that maybe open on another computer(read only)?
