The two workbooks are "PFA.xlsm", which holds the macro, and "Weekly Reports.xls", which holds the data. Both workbooks are open and stored on the I drive.

The macro is run on "Weekly Reports" to lookup a number and return a name.

The macro is:

Sub RefLookUp()
'
' RefLookUp Macro
'
Range("A:A").Select
     Range("A2:A" & Cells(65336, "B").End(xlUp).Row).Select
     Selection.Formula = "=VLOOKUP(G2,'[I:\WHSE\BDG\Curt\PFA.xlsm]SheetAPF'!$A$2:$B$65336,2,FALSE)"

End Sub

After running the macro #N/A is returned and the value in Cell A2 is:

=VLOOKUP(G2,'[I:\WHSE\BDG\Curt\[PFA.xlsm],SheetAPF]PFA.xlsm],SheetAPF'!$A$2:$B$65336,2,FALSE)
Weekly-Report.xls
PFA.xlsm

1. Try this macro

Sub RefLookUp()
'
' RefLookUp Macro
'
Range("A2:A60000").Select
     
     Selection.Formula = "=VLOOKUP(G2,'[PFA.xlsm]SheetAPF'!$A$2:$B$65336,2,FALSE)"

End Sub

Open in new window


2. Both workbooks must be open to get results.

Hi

Sub RefLookUp()
'
' RefLookUp Macro
'
     Range("A2:A" & Cells(65336, "B").End(xlUp).Row).Select
     Selection.Formula = "=VLOOKUP(G2,'[PFA.xlsm]APF'!$A$2:$B$65336,2,FALSE)"

End Sub

Open in new window

The APF Sheet is adressed wrong (only APF)

Rgonzo1971,

Works perfectly.

The prior solution returned a "Run-time error '1004: Application-defined or object-defined error".

I appreciate both responses.

Thank you very much.
