I need to be able to count the active rows (A:A) in a remote worksheet.  There are about 75 of them.

I have this formula working...

=COUNTA('C:\Xref_Files\\[XRef 1.xlsx]XREF_1!A:A)

But I was hoping to just Concatinate the string string based on columns instead of typing the formula each time - such as...

C:\Xref_Files\      [XREF 1.xlsx]      Sheet1!      A:A
C:\Xref_Files\      [XREF 2.xlsx]      Sheet1!      A:A
C:\Xref_Files\      [XREF 3.xlsx]      Sheet1!      A:A

And build the formula based off of this.  Any ideas?
