    Formula Assistance (XP)

    I have a workbook with a cell linked to a closed workbook. What I would like to do is reference the linked cell one place to the left similar to using the offset(0,-1) function in VBA.

    Is this possible?

    Thanks,
    John

    How about copying the current linked formula one cell to the left.

    Could you explain what you mean by "reference the linked cell one place to the left ?"

    I think the OP means

    =OFFSET([Book1]Sheet1!$A$1,0,-1)

    which returns #VALUE once the source WB is closed and the active one recalcs.

    That's a bummer, $A$1 offset by -1 columns should give a #REF error. <img src=/S/yep.gif border=0 alt=yep width=15 height=15>

    If that is what he wants, I don't have a good solution.

    Why yes, of course it does. <img src=/S/blush.gif border=0 alt=blush width=15 height=15> A better example would have been:

    =OFFSET([Book1]Sheet1!$B$1,0,-1)
