    I would like to know if it is possible to take my primary workbook (workbookA) and make a secondary copy of it with a different name (workbookB), that will automatically update when workbookA is changed. I need to do this because I will have multiple users running macros that will reference WorkbookA and at the same time the quality department needs to be able to check the workbookB for changes (which will be just be a copy of workbookA). If they open the file that is being referenced by others it will throw errors for the other users.

    Is there a simple way to do this without using a reference in every cell?

    I am using Excel 2007 on an XP Machine.

    Thanks,
    Allen Jones
