Hi guys,
I am making an excel file as a compilation file from other excel files. However i have no clue as how to make this work.

In column A, i have a list of store names which is also happen to be the file names for each store sales record

In column B i intend to "read" the name for each store name in column A, cell D10 (which is uniform in each store files).

When i copy to next row, a window pops up which i must choose individual files. This defeats the purpose of copying the formulas. I did it once using openoffice but turnsout i havent found a way in ms excel.

How do i solve this issue? I am not familiar with macro fyi. Thank you in advance.

Copy formula down without changing references
If you have =SUM(F2:F49) in F50; type Alt+' in F51 to copy =SUM(F2:F49) to F51, leaving the formula in edit mode. Change SUM to COUNT.
