workbook with the same alpha numeric in a different workbook and have the

formula return the data in the cell adjacent (right side) to the matched

cell. The data in the second workbook will be in a different row each time I

run it, but the column will be the same. The alpha numeric character to look

up is in Column D. The data I want to show up is in Column E. Here is an

example:

Data to match: "43005.60 Total"

I want to go to the second workbook, look for "43005.60 Total" (Column D)

and have it give me the $$$ that are shown in Column E.

To make matters more complicated, the files are on different network drives

and the formulas need to be dummy proof for multiple beginning Excel users.

I am hoping one of the brilliant forum members here can help me out. You

all seem to know everything about Excel!
