Hi, check my Macro on the "WTD Commentary", I am getting an Application -defined or obeject-defined error.Runtime Error 2004.
Its occuring on the line of code
        ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = _
        "=VLOOKUP(RC[-4],'[" & myfilename & "]" & MYSHEETNAME & "'!" & myrangename & ",16,FALSE)"

You need to have both Excel spreadsheets open at the same time when you run the Macro. Any ideas why?

You are populating FormulaR1C1, but using a standard addressing for the data table in myrangename. The result is
  =VLOOKUP(RC[-4],'[WTD-Commentary-17112014.xlsm]Hedges Exposure'!$D$7:$Z$50,16,FALSE)
but, as the commented example in your macro below that line shows, you need R1C1 addressing.

Using
myrangename = ActiveSheet.Range("D7:Z50").Address(ReferenceStyle := xlR1C1)

Open in new window

will do for this formula, but you have more of them in the macro, all requiring adjustment. Since they use static references, it should not be difficult to do so.
