Hi. I've been using this forum as a resource for years but am only now am actually posting own question. I'm not a super user but I'm techier than most admins. I'm coming into a job where there is daily downloads of CSV files and they need to be pulled into another spreadsheet almost like a form in access - only certain columns are used and the formatting is different. Basically you have one raw data file with a million columns and then they only need to see a few columns and have it formatted better. Right now it's accomplished by a tedious cut/paste, clear contents blah blah blah.

I cobbled together some VBA code to import the CSV file to this "form" workbook but when you delete the data for the next day's upload you get all those ref issues. I can't find anything about how to get around this. So my question is: is this the right approach for this and, if so, how can I get around this problem? Is there a better/easier way?

Thanks for your brilliance. :)
