refreshing data in Excel spreadsheet that has named fields

Experts,

I have an Excel spreadsheet that I refresh each month with new data.  Currently I am just pasting the new data over the old data because I have named fields that are used on other sheets for calculations using formulas.

Is there a way through VBA to refresh  tab "Old_Data"  on WorkbookA with "New_Data" from WorkbookB and not lose my named fields.

It works perfectly when there is one worksheet in  workbook.  My challenge is I have more than one worksheet in both workbooks.

you did not mention that you have more worksheets.  check your initial message.  the macros that i have created is exactly as per your request.

so can you elaborate how many worksheets in Workbook A and how many Worksheets in WorkbookB exists and which worksheets and thier names from B needs to be copied in how many worksheets of Workbook A?

I am sorry for the understating.  I thought I could take the code and modify it .

 I can create a separate workbook for each input sheet.  Medical Hospital Inpatient and Outpatient

The workbook to be updated has four sheets that are to be refreshed  The entire workbook has 22 sheets.  

The other sheets use the data from the refreshed sheets through vlookups and sumifs.

The sheets to be updated are:   Medical Hospital Inpatient and Outpatient

ProfessorJimJamCommented:
becuase your last explanation is still not clear.   so the four sheets to be updated are in workbookA right?
and what are the other sheets in workbookB to serve as a source of data for the WorkbookA sheets?

I will create four workbooks:

There are four workbooks:  
     Medical
     Hospital
     Inpatient
     Outpatient

They will be used to update the respective sheet on Old_Workbook which has multiple sheets.  The "sheets"  to be updated have the same name as the individual workbooks listed above.

from your initial thread question,   I have provided you with what was needed exactly as per your question.

now, you have came up with additional request, it would appropriate to mark this thread as accepted completed.
and open a new thread, so that we look at that as a new requirement of solution for excel workbooks.
