I would like for my users to be able to change the external data ref by using a form.

What is happening is the sheet that I reference has been renamed several times, which people are allowed to do, but it disables the external data query in my worksheet.

I would like to be able to allow the users to have an input box that changes the query to the correct sheet thus changing the query if someone renames the sheet or moves it.

the sheets are labeled by years with the current year tab named "Current Year". When the year is over the sheet is copied and labeled by the year that has past and sometimes the new sheet is labeled with a new name.

I know this seems very confusing but if clarification is needed I can provide it.
Any help is appreciated and thank you.
