I am using a simple link from 1 file to another:  =[source0115.xlsx]Sheet1!$A$1

The file name is source0115.xlsx

I want to make that a reference so I can keep changing a reference cell in the destination sheet to pick up data from the correct month without having to find/replace.

I tried =[=C1]Sheet1!$A$1 where C1 was source0215 but it didn't work.

THANKS!
