Looking to add the file name to cell B2, from the list that was selected; and, the date and time on cell C3.  And also, when the data gets copied over, to copy "only" values and formats.

Thanks,
JP

Hi JP,

Here is an update for your userform code

Private Sub btnOK_Click()
On Error Resume Next

With ActiveSheet
    .Range("B5:D34").ClearContents
    Workbooks(Me.cbWbks.Value).Sheets("YTD").Range("A1:C30").Copy
    .Range("B5:D34").PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues
    .Range("B5:D34").PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteFormats
    
    .[b2] = Me.cbWbks.Value
    .[c3] = Now
End With

If Err <> 0 Then MsgBox "Sheet YTD not found in workbook " & Me.cbWbks.Value

Unload Me
End Sub


Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
Dim wbk As Workbook

For Each wbk In Application.Workbooks
    Debug.Print wbk.Name & "{" & wbk.IsAddin
    If wbk.IsAddin = False Then Me.cbWbks.AddItem (wbk.Name)
Next

End Sub
