    I have used the =indirect function which allows me to insert a filename and get the contents of a cell, therefrom. But it is not relational, if I copy this function to another cell it does not change the target cell.

    Any ideas on how to make it relational?

    try referencing the cell from another cell.

    for example =indirect("'[eg formulas.xls]Time and Date Formulas'!"&a1)

    where A1 contains the cell reference.

    If your doing the above for a whole table I alway insert a Row and Column which have the Letter reference (Col) and Number Ref (Row).

    e.g.

    =indirect("'[eg formulas.xls]Time and Date Formulas'!"&B$1&$A2)

    where the inserted row contains B, C, D etc.
    and the column 1, 2, 3 etc.

    Hope this helps, I can email a small eg if you need it.
