Reference to previous sheet VBA question

Hi all,

I am currently using a quick macro in order to reference the previous sheet in excel documents. I’m using it to display trends week by week. (UP DOWN STEADY based on the previous sheet, looks like this =IF(prevsheet(I33)>I33,”#”,IF(prevsheet(I33)<I33, “$”, IF(prevsheet(I33)=I33,”1″))) I am running into a small problem though, in which if i have two excel workbooks open at the same time my trends will change and they will be incorrect, up until i close the second workbook. My macro looks like this:

Function PrevSheet(RCell As Range)

    Dim xIndex As Long


    xIndex = RCell.Worksheet.Index

    If xIndex > 1 Then _

        PrevSheet = Worksheets(xIndex – 1).Range(RCell.Address)

End Function



So i’m looking on how to lock it only to run on the excel workbook that it’s intended for and not read from another workbook. Should I include something like a filename?

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added”
    checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several e-mails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Bless you!
