Linking documents

How can I get data that is updated in one file to automatically update in another

RE: linking documents

Hi Dawn, thanks for your query. That can only happen if you have linked cells between the file and you need to open the files for the upates to occur. Other than that, you're looking at some VBA code to achieve it!

Hope this helps,
