    Default Config file to control matching variables across .xlsm files?

    Hi,

    I have 11 parent .xlsm files and unknown number of child .xlsm files.

    Each parent file has a year variable
    Each child file has a date variable, a year variable and a string variable.

    Year variable is same value across all files
    Each child file has the same value variable

    A user needs to control and update these variables across all files; at present there are 3 variables that require updating globally, but may reach 9.

    What would be easiest way to make these variable change updates across all files?

    I do not want to modify any registry files, but haven't used config files, .ini files etc - they appear to be a CSV equivalent that is loaded into each file when they open?

    File structure equivalent is: Folder

    \Year\Area\11 parent.xlsm files

    \Year\Client\Client_1 \Client_1.xlsm
    \Year\Client\Client_2 \Client_2.xlsm
    \Year\Client\Client_x \Client_x.xlsm


    Any suggestions please?

    TIA,
    Jack
