    Vlookup() on closed workbook

    The data worksheets for my analysis are HUGE. The file itself takes about 3 minutes to open. So I am trying to use Vlookup()s on a closed workbook.

    Here is the code:

    Hi lloydgodin,

    Im not sure this would work but an attempt to resolve your query with a simple formula.

    In any newly open workbook try performing the below Vlookup - with your search value in A2.

    I was just unsure of the sheet name in the closed workbook. So please replace the red text with the sheet name and try.


    Thanks,

    Looking to do this in VBA and not within the cell. Thank you for your suggestion.

    I have too less knowledge on VBA; however, found someting different within your codes. The red colored dont match.

    what you are doing won't work. if you don't use a formula in the cell you'll need to open the workbook or use an excel4 macro. why not put the formula in the cell and then replace it with its value?
    or since you only want a small table for your lookup just use direct link formulas to extract the table to the current workbook and then use that in the vlookup.

    you only want a small table for your lookup
    The tables are immense. As an example 1 array is D278605:F284285. There are over 523 per worksheet. There are 8 worksheets.

    use an excel4 macro
    This sounds promising, but I have no clue what it is. Someone else suggested XML shema. Again, no clue.

    Re: Vlookup() on closed workbook

    I don't know what XML schemas have to do with it but I reckon your options are (in pretty much the order I'd recommend)
    -formula, then convert to value as suggested previously
    -use a database program
    -querytable to extract the data you want into the current workbook
    -ado to grab the table data
