i created a macro that includes the current date in a cell in the finished product...just realizing that if someone runs the macro on an archived report, the current date and not the date associated with the report will appear.

is there a formula or some other means to show the workbook title in a specified cell...e.g. if i open report_03-11-09.xls and run the macro, "report_03-11-09" will appear in the desired cell?

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

Hi!

Check thiz out.

You should use something like (in VBA-code...)

Code:
MyName = ThisWorkbook.Name

Then assign MyName to the desired cell.
