Excel VBA combine two working workbooks

HI Expert,
I have 2 workbooks
1). The first one  is a drop-down - vlookup and update source workbook that works great.
-  basically this one has a data table on one sheet and a vlookup sheet that shows the info from source through a drop down choice. It also allows updating the source by hitting the update button (VBA)

2) On the second one (expiry email) it has a dashboard where you push a button and it creates emails to send to the trainers that have expiring employees for license. (works great). There is additional code in this one where you add a name to the data table and it adds five names to the Expiry Date table (ExpDate) this also works great. I then manually add the five categories and copy down the vlookups and it works. This ExpDate sheet is needed for the email program to work.

Both WBs uses the same data table (Master Log) as the master information.

I want to combine these into one work book, but every time I try to do it I get errors in the VB. Something to do with the drop-down.

It would be awesome if I could get this working.
Thanks so much

Does it matter which workbook you end up with?

Is this what you need?

I have deleted the unused rows in the Master Log Table - you don't need unused rows. Just add them as required.

The Data validation list is now linked to that table and will be dynamic as you add or remove names.

I think I am missing a macro (it asks to update prompt right away when opening)
01-error.JPGor i get this one
02.JPGHmmmm
Probably something I am doing, Everything else seems to work Roy
Thanks Chris
......
It would be super super awesome in the ExpDate table if the Vlookup and the categories would auto copy and paste when the new name comes in from the Master Log sheet......

If possible
Thanks

I imported all the macros but I will check.

The VLOOKUP issue can probably be solved by using an Excel Table. I'll look at that as well.

It may be Sunday before I get time though

I don't get that error message but I have removed a link to the old file. The Update macro runs with no errors. I have debugged the whole workbook with no errors reported. Check this updated version

Can you tell me where the VLOOKUP formulas are. I'm not sure what should be updating
