This one sheet can provide a clickable list of your worksheet labels that link directly to their corresponding sheets.This post will demonstrate how to create a Table of Contents (TOC) that updates automatically.When you create external references (also called links), you can control whether the external references stay up to date, and when they are updated.If another user has changed a value in a cell, Microsoft Excel does not look for the new value unless you tell it to.The workbook that contains the links is called the destination workbook, and the workbook that is linked to it is called the source workbook.If the workbook that you have opened (called a destination file) contains links to other workbooks or files (called source files), and the source files have changed, the links in the workbook that you are opening may display information that is out of date. The destination workbook contains the external reference. The external reference (or link) is a reference to a cell range in the source workbook. The source workbook contains the cell and the actual value that is retrieved and placed in the destination workbook.'the next Calculate line may be needed depending on the Calculation option you have set for your workbook (if it's set to Manual Calculate), remove the apostrophe if that is the case: 'Calculate xxx. Screen Updating = True End Sub In any event, the apostrophe needs removing from: 'On Error Go To here (my error for leaving it in) The other single line you may need, if updating doesn't happen, is: 'Calculate At the moment it is inoperative.

When you open a destination workbook, and the source workbook is not open, you may be alerted by the Trust Bar whether to update the links.Don't prompt for all workbooks I open, and update the links automatically This option affects every workbook opened on the computer.Users who open the workbook on another computer are not affected.This is the closest I have got to getting it to work but I can't get past this password issue when running the macro.Hi, it is a very basic Macro which goes to the other protected file, I recorded it as I went to the file, added the password and refreshed the links. However, it still comes up and asks for the password to refresh the data every time.
