Basically, I get monthly reports with data and I want specific cells from that imported into a spreadsheet that I have with charts that tracks the monthly performance.

For anyone that knows about this, is it fairly easy to do or should I pay someone that knows how to do it?

TIA!
We do this in some of our spreadsheets, but it takes some time to set it up. We use VB macros.

Yep, cheap price, some back story like that, a "no risk" trial period, car being shipped, and option to return at owner's expense.

Car shipments are usually $1-2k, so who in their right mind would really bear the burden of 2 of them potentially?
