    I know it is possible with ADO, but maybe someone here can show me an easier way to accomplish the following.

    I have a master workbook which will be in charge of updating multiple other workbooks.

    What I would like to do is to update the workbooks without opening them.

    I have found multiple examples of updating the open workbook with data from a closed workbook. How about the other way around?

    Can I send data to a closed workbook?

    If you know the syntax, please post an example of sending info from ActiveWorkbookMaster.xls Range A:1 to ClosedExample.xls cell B:1

    I really appreciate the help!

    Have a nice day!

    Tom

    Hi Tom

    I am afraid that VBA code cannot send data to cells on a Worksheet in a Closed Workbook.

    Would it matter if you reversed this and pulled in the data from a closed Workbook when you open it? I say this because, unless the Workbook is opened it shouldn't matter whether it has had new data entered.

    "unless the Workbook is opened it shouldn't matter whether it has had new data entered."

    It could matter if there was a link to the closed workbook in some other workbook.

    If it does matter, why not open/update/close each workbook?

    Thanks Guys

    Several days later and I don't know what I was thinking. If I has any rational for wanting to do it the way I was trying to do it, it escapes me now.
    I've learned so much on this board in the past week.
    It doesn't even seem to be a big deal now.
    Thanks
    Tom
