Hey guys

I'm calling data from other sheets.

I autofilled the address and got this:

'[Final.XLS]07.01.04'! (And then the cell number)

Where does the 07.01.04 come from? It is not a folder name.

Also, I was wondering if I can use a cell on the sheet to call up data in the other cells.

Cell A1 contains the filename.

I've tried '[A1]'! with no success. I'm a n00b. What do I do?

Easy bullets in Excel
If you have a numeric keypad, press Alt+7 on numeric keypad to type a bullet in Excel.
07.01.04 in this case appears to be the sheet name.

As for the second question you would need the function =INDIRECT.EXT(). I can't recall offhand what Add-In it's part of but if you do a search on this site for it you'll be able to find it and how to use is.

I'm not real sure what your looking for but here are a few ways to get data from another sheet.

Data is here:
Book3
ABCD
11-Jan10
22-Jan20
33-Jan30
44-Jan40
5
Sheet1


and is pulled to this sheet.
Book2
ABCD
11-Jan10[Book3]Sheet1!$B$1
2
33-Jan30[Book3]Sheet1!$B$3
4
Sheet1


That any help?

I want to use cell A1 as the source for filename.

I know I need to use the INDIRECT command, but I have no idea how to implement it.

=SUMIF('[=INDIRECT("&C11&".xls)]job costings'!$D15:G732,"1.1",'[=INDIRECT("&C11&".xls)]job costings'!$F15:F1564)

is the code I am using at the moment.

Note that instead of A1 I'm referencing to c11
