    How to edit links without opening ALL workbooks linked to a file.

    Good day, I'm making a music chart database so I am planning to make hundreds(or even thousands) of workbooks , 1 for each artist . And there would be 1 main file that would contain summary of each workbooks.
    In this "summary workbook" , I have the weight for each points in every position on the Hot 100. My problem is that whenever I need to update that weight , I need to open all the workbooks since all workbooks depend on that weight table. Is there a way that I won't need to open all files since it takes so much time opening hundreds of workbooks just for the updates.

    There are 2 workbooks attached in this post:
    1. Summary

    Sheet 1 = contains all the summary
    Sheet 2 = are the values that are updated time to time

    2. A sample of an artist's workbook.

    Hi and welcome to the forum

    A workbook needs open to be updated.

    However, I would question the wisdom or having "hundreds(or even thousands) of workbooks". I have no idea what your data looks like, but it is almost always better to have 1 large "database" of info - in ONE worksheet, and then have additional sheets to summarize/analize the data
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools
