I have a workbook that I keep track of hours worked for employees, it is laid out employee name, total hrs, and columns for hrs worked each day.

In a different workbook I want to be able to have a formula or a way to lookup and match all the employees and import the total hrs from the first workbook.

How would I start something like this?

Thanks
Rick
 

Excel Facts

Workdays for a market open Mon, Wed, Friday?
Yes! Use "0101011" for the weekend argument in NETWORKDAYS.INTL or WORKDAY.INTL. The 7 digits start on Monday. 1 means it is a weekend.

Okay, I got the Vlookup to work, and update the info when I open the workbook, but If I choose not to update the info when opening the workbook how do I update it manually when I want to? I figure I will need a macro to do it but I can't figure how to do it to be able to record a macro. Anyone?

Thanks
Rick
