Hi, I would like to be able to copy data from one Excel worksheet to a different worksheet in another workbook as a link using the =sum(a1:B32) command but don't know how to refer to the source document in my command.  Can someone help please.  I read that you can go to a tab under save and select Paste as hyperlink but mine is graed out in my Excel 2007, Windows 10.

If you have both books open, copy the =sum() cell, then go to the other workbook cell that you want the link in, and right click and chose paste link (last option on the right I think).

Start your formula in the workbook1 where you want to copy the data,

after then =sum(

switch to the workbook that has the range of data you want, select the range, and close the formula with the end parenthesis. Hit enter.

You'll notice that the formula now references a range from another workbook.

It'll look something like..

=SUM([test2.xlsx]Sheet1!$A$1:$B$32)
