If all workbooks are open, you can create a formula to do this in the 3rd workbook.  Then you can copy/paste-special to save the data exclusively in the 3rd book.

e.g.
='[Workbook1.xlsx]Sheet5'!$E$1

This is simple to add.  In book 3, simply go to a desired cell and enter an "=" to start a formula.
Then go to the book that contains the data you want to put there and click that cell and press the enter key.
A reference to that data is now in book 3, ready to use as needed (as long as the original book is still open.)
From there, you can always apply the drag-copy features in excel the same way you would with any other formula.
