Excel data daily update linking between workbooks

Using Excel, I am trying to link a column in one workbook to update daily to one cell in another workbook. The part I can not get to work is making the one cell automatically pull the current date value from the first workbook. I believe I need to use either an IF formula or a macro to tell the one cell to pull the column data next to today's date. Anyone understand/can help? Thanks!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you want to set up a cell reference based on a value in another cell, just type “=” and click on the cell you want to mirror. That cell will auto-update based on any changes made in the original cell (provided that calculation is set to automatic). I don’t know what you mean by “link a column to update to one cell”, that doesn’t make sense. If you want the current date to appear in a cell, type “=DATE()” or “=NOW()” in a cell.
