    Re: how to use other excel file when using a vba tool

    Not quite sure exactly what you have in mind, but I generally set a workbook variable every time I open a new workbook file that I want to use.

    e.g.
    Dim wbTemp as Workbook

    Set wbTemp = Application.GetOpenFilename(...blah...bla

    Then you can easily refer stuff in the master workbook with
    ThisWorkbook.

    and in other workboooks

    wbTemp.

    Re: how to use other excel file when using a vba tool

    Why are you unable to open another file from VBA in the first file? Have you tried and if so tell us what you've tried?

    Please upload the workbooks. It is always easier to advise if we can see your request in its context.

    Show a before and after situation with manually calculated results, explaining which information is data and which is results, and if it's not blindingly obvious how you have arrived at your results some explanatory notes as well.

    To upload a file click the Go Advanced button at the foot of your post, look underneath the post area for the Manage Attachments section and take it from there.

    I'll put your rather abrupt tone and rudeness down to perhaps English not being your first language.

    You were asked to upload both workbooks.
    Pictures are rarely any use and in any case I've no idea how you use the form.


    I'm not understanding it since you haven't bothered to tell me. So as well as uploading the workbook you'll need to tell us exactly how you fill the form in and what you expect to happen.

    You need to display the form modelessly, not modaly

    You haven't yet uploaded the two workbooks. And when (If ) you choose do so we need to understand the steps you take and how you input to, or select from the form...and other stuff.

    There's no point in being enigmatic about all this. We need concrete stuff to work with.
