Hi All,

I am trying to reference to a particular cell in a close workbook, using the indirect fuction, however I only get a #REF! result. Could you pelase assist on where I'm going wrong?

INDIRECT("'C:\Users\USER\Desktop\FOLDER1\["&$B3&"].xlsm ["&$D3&"]'!", B$69)

The value of B3 will decided the file name I would like to get the reference from.
The value of D3 will have the name of the tab and B69 will be the cell I'm referencing to.

Hope it make sense.

Thanks,
Sabi

Use a custom number format of #,##0,K. Each comma after the final 0 will divide the displayed number by another thousand

One more question please.
The Pull Function workes perfectly, however every single time I do an amendment on one of the worksheets, the Summary sheet with the Pull function isn't updateing the value of the cell. I have to edit it and after I press Enter again it updates the value instantly.
Is there something I've missed out from the Module?
I would like to update the value as I'm opening the Summary sheet.

Cheers
