    Re: Data carried forward to new workbook (Office 97)

    I assume that you don't spend much time driving backwards, so you could use something like =MAX(SheetName!A:A) to retrieve the last mileage entry.

    Data carried forward to new workbook (Office 97)

    I have a car log that mileage is entered onto. It is done each month. There are varies number of entries. I want to care the last mileage entry into the next month. The new month is a new workbook. How do I tell Excel to use the last entry from a certain column? Thanks for all the help. I hope this makes sence.

    This will get me started. I am learning Excel because of work. It is stated to use "sheetname" but I want to bring forward an entry from another workbook. What would the entry look like?

    The fastest way is to open both workbooks. Then start typing the formula in the target workbook and where appropriate point and click to the right sheet and cell in the source workbook. Excel will create the proper syntax for you.
