    I have a master workbook with 20 worksheets. 5 worksheets in the worksbook are distributed to field reps, but the remaining 15 worksheets are not. What is the best practice for receiving the 5-worksheet workbook from the field rep and importing the data into the 20-worksheet master workbook? If I merely use Copy Sheet I am able to copy the worksheets into the master workbook but then I have to remove the pathname references in each of the copied worksheets in order to map the data in the master workbook - which is quite cumbersome. Suggestions?

    Hi jpirhalla, welcome to the forum.

    Have you tried moving the sheets over. Dragging the sheet from the field reps back into the now-15-sheet book?

    I use Find/Replace. If I want to remove a reference to something like c:\myfolder\myfile.xls, then I:

    Hit Ctrl+H
    In the Find what, type 'c:\myfolder\myfile.xls'
    In the Replace with, don't put anything
    Make sure it's looking in formulas
    Hit Replace all.
