How to create Links in a cell to other Excel docs Cell in Planning layout


Hi All,

I have a requirement to replace an existing forecasting process using normal Excel with BPS with Excel in place. One difficulty I came across is that the existing Excel input template has cells with links to many other excel files so users does not to open all other Excel documents and copy and paste the figures in.

I am stuck on replicate this function in BPS as I cannot create links to to other Excel directly in a cell in BPS Excel layout. My initial idea is to create a Macro to copy the data across but in deeper thought this might not be the best solution as the number of excel link can be a lot and the name and location of these files might change quite frequently and I cannot hard code it in the macro..

Any ideas?
