You can do this.  I'm assuming you have to open wkbB:

Sub doWork()
Dim wkbA As Workbook
Dim wkbB As Workbook

    Set wkbA = ActiveWorkbook
    Set wkbB = Workbooks.Open(Filename:="I:\WoronoraForecast\bookb.xls")
    
    wkbB.Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("A1").Value = "76767"
    'wkbB.Close SaveChanges:=True 'uncomment to save wkbB
End Sub

Open in new window
