    Paste the Function I sent you into a standard Module.
    In your worksheet, enter:
    =CustomProperty("blah")

    Re: File/custom Property fields

    Be aware that that will still require forcing a calculation for the cell to
    update.

    Re: File/custom Property fields

    no luck, i've tried to save the and re-open the file, still i don't see the
    updated "file property" value getting refreshed, i would have to revisit the
    cell and refresh it manually

    Let me try to explain once again what i'm really searching for!

    * there are many places in Excel sheets where i user many common fields
    (client/author/filepath/release version/base version/baselined date/ect), now
    all i'm trying to achive is to store all these common things into custom/file
    properties, just like i do in MSWord, and go on referencing this custom/file
    properties.

    now with your approach i'm able to retrive my own defined custom properties,
    but if i make any changes to these fields, this value is not getting
    reflected no matter what i do, unless i revisit the cell and manually refresh
    it!

    hope you know what i'm trying to achive here.

    Thanks again,
    -KC

    Re: File/custom Property fields

    Hello guys,
    I found the answer for my other part of my question.

    I'll will also need to make sure the spreadsheet is updated manually. To do
    this-
    Click on <Tools><Options><Calculations><Manual>
    OR <F9>

    Thanks again.
