    Pull cell Data from other workbook but with the path being variable.

    Hi, im trying to create a summary workbook for pulling though data from Various work books when the variable path is defined.

    The other work books are stored in different locations and i can save a database of these file paths within a different worksheet within the current summary workbook.

    For the summary page i am pulling thorough the defined workbook paths to cell B5 e.g. cell B5 States "C:\Users\user\Box\03 - CONTRACT\01 - Live Jobs\128 - Seven Junction\1 Financial\[Material Order.xlsm]Mat Summary"

    within the current summary workbook i want cell C9 to look at the path within cell B5 and then make it equal to that workbook and worksheet cell D5.

    But i just dont know what to type into cell C9 to make excel understand this path.

    hope this makes sense and someone can help.

    thanks
    Danny

    Hi Danny1986:

    How about in B5:

    C9 can look at B5.

    Yes no?
