Hello,

I have a problem in Excel to which i seeking a solution.

I have imported some External data using the Query option and I am able to Refresh it as and when I want.

In another location in the file, I have given reference to a particular cell that I am importing (eg. on Cell A3 I am saying =G121 to show the contents of cell G121).

In the normal course in Excel, when a row is added or deleted the cell references get automatically updated.

However, as I am using an External Query to populate a column, as soon as I put refresh, I am assuming that Excel thinks that I have deleted and uploaded new data. So now what happens is that the old cell references are still in place, but it is now picking the wrong cell.

How can I solve it? I would like to have suggestions so that I can make the cell references get automatically updated or reference the cell based on a partial text string of what I am searching for.

Please help.

Could you please upload a sample EXCEL file WITH sample data, macro, formula , conditional formatting etc on some shared site like https://authentification.site , http://docs.google.com, http://wikisend.com/ , http://www.editgrid.com etc
AND post back here the link to allow better understanding of how it is now and how you foresee. Based on the sample book, could you re-explain your problem too.


Note:
your data need not be to be real data but a good representative of how data looks like
