I had drop down tabs I wanted to share with my boss so she could change them if needed but none of the tabs transferred to the new doc.

your step by step manual is great. But I have problem with updating. When I insert formula, everything is copied. But after adding new data, formual is not updating.
I read on internet, that if Owners of both documents are different, formula doesnt work. Is it truth and what is solution for this issue?

What is to stop Editors of the second spreadsheet file changing the IMPORTRANGE range to include other (hidden) data?
