    Hi Guys
    I am new to this forum and not very technical minded so please bear with me.

    I have a monitoring spreadsheet through which i monitor c40 word docs. The biggest issue i face is that these words docs have a box with an expiry date on it. I normally have to open each word doc every week and update the date to current date. Then i go back in spreadsheet and manually update a column which has conditional formatting and goes red to alert me. For my purpose i will have the same date in all word files

    WHat i want to achieve is to have a button in my excel file which when pressed updates the date in all word docs to current date. Word files will be closed during the update

    I hope i am making sense

    Thanking yo uin advance

    Regards
