Depends if you have alterations you wish to keep on your original version. I would save the new e-mailed version with a different file name to my HDD. Open that spreadsheet and then either copy and paste the data to my original. Option two would be to rename sheets and copy them to my original perhaps resetting the links to the new data. It depends on how much has changed really.

I would agree with Taff™, you may wish to refer to the older data at some future point, I would keep the old ones, and name the updated versions by logical names you can easily recognise. That way you have the old data to refer to if required.

thanks i read though the linked thread and decided to save to same folder so it overwrites the pre version. I do not need old figures.
