    Question Using VBA To Open A New Worksheet Containing Existing Data

    Is anybody able to help with the following:-

    Trying to set up a new customer database using Excel and VBA. Each customer has a database entry (1no excel file per customer)with their details. On each customer entry, I want to have a couple of macro buttons. One to open a job card template and one to open a quotation template in Word. I've actually managed to get this far but I'm struggling with I want to have the customer details transferred from the customer entry into specific cells on the job card or specific locations on the quotation (Word document). Also, I need the job card to open in the same workbook as the customer entry.

    Please excuse if my terminology is a little off. I'm fairly good with excel formulas but I'm completely new to VBA and macros.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    hi, Rosie

    one excel file per customer is likely setting yourself up for a world of pain. this sounds instead like a job for a database

    if continuing with the current plan & you want help, I'd suggest there are two basic options.
    1. engage a consultant, like MrExcel, or
    2. work through each step in small bites & ask for specific help when stuck. being completely new to VBA this might take a very long time, but on the positive side it sounds like you've made good progress already, and a project like this is a fantastic way to learn.

    all the best. regards, Fazza
    If you've posted a clearly explained question & sample data - both input & corresponding output - that can be copied to Excel, THANK YOU.
    Google can find answers to nearly every question.
