VBA – How to use COUNTA for range in closed workbook?

1 Endorsement
Last Modified: 2018-12-05
As a check, I am comparing the source data (the closed workbook) to the imported file in the current workbook.  I am trying to do this by counting the non-blank cells in column A in both files.  How do I target another workbook and count the non-blank cells without opening it?
