Linked workbooks?


A

avinity

Hello,

I would like to be able to enter information into Wkbk 1 and have it
automatically update Wkbk 2 - is that possible?

To take it one step further, I have 7 separate workbooks with lots of
entries with different program codes. I would love to have all the entries
with program code A update automatically to the Program A workbook and all
entries with Program Code B update to the Program B.

Can I make this work?

1. In EXCEL 2007 Set up 2 Workbooks one called avinity1.xlsx the other
called avinity2.xlsx.

2. In avinity1 Workbook in cell A 1 type, for example, this is cell A1.

3. Go to avinity2 Workbook and in cell A1 type:-

=[avinity1.xlsx]Sheet1!$A$1

This will copy the information directly from the avinity1 Workbook.

There are other ways of doing this.

If my comments have helped please hit Yes.

Thanks.

Alternatively the following may help:-

1. In avinity1 type in data (any data that you like) in cells A 6 to E 7
inclusive (10 cells in total - you can make this range any size you like).

2. Highlight the range from number 1. above and do a Ctrl-C to copy.

3. Go to avinity2 Workbook (any cell that you like) then Home group / Paste
/ Paste Link. You should see that the data from avinity1 is copied in. Now,
if you amend avinity1, for the said range, it will update avinity2
automatically.

Thanks.
