updating an excel spreadsheet from data input through another Excel spreadsheet

I have a spreadsheet that has membership information on it.  I have another spreadsheet that allows the user to select answers to questions from a listbox on another spreadsheet.

I know using vlookup I can read data.  Is there a way to update a spreadsheet with a value that has been entered on another spreadsheet and save the value.

Yes, it would simply be an equal formula (except for 2 different files)

Your VBA has to say (lets say you have to update the value in cell A1)

activesheet.range("A1").value = otherworkbookname.otherworkbooksheet.range("A1").value

Let me know if this is the logic you are looking for, then I can design a quick VBA

Yes this is the logic.  It is slightly more complicated.  I will have a member ID in Sheet1!A4.  This ID will be used to update the  respective row in column K in Sheet2 where the member ID will be i ncolumn A with the value from Sheet1!H3.

Sub updateMember()
Dim lRowMember
Dim lColLoop As Long

Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual
Application.DisplayAlerts = False


If MsgBox("do you want to update", vbYesNo) = vbYes Then
    lRowMember = Application.WorksheetFunction.Match(Cells(4, 5), Sheets("Members").Columns(1), 0)
   
    For lColLoop = 1 To 8
        Sheets("Members").Cells(lRowMember, 10 + lColLoop).Value = Cells(15 + lColLoop, 8)
    Next lColLoop

End If 'If MsgBox("do you want to update", vbYesNo) = vbYes Then

Application.ScreenUpdating = True
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationAutomatic
Application.DisplayAlerts = True


End Sub
