Lookup problem in Excel 2003

I had a formula in an Excel workbook called Payments to update the bank balance during 2011-2012:

=LOOKUP(1E+100,'\\Pfadc01\company data\ADMINISTRATION\Excel\Accounts 2011-2012\Bank 11-12\[2011-2012 Bank balance.xls]PF'!$F:$F)

This worked perfectly well until I needed a similar formula for 2012-2013. I have amended it as appropriate but it only returns 0.00 on my Payments sheet.

This is the formula I am using:
=LOOKUP(1E+100,'\\Pfadc01\company data\ADMINISTRATION\Excel\Accounts 2012-2013\Bank 12-13\[2012-2013 Bank balance.xls]PF'!$F:$F)

Can anyone see where I have gone wrong please? Help would be greatly appreciated!

Quite possibly nowhere.

The formula returns the last numeric value in column F.  Presumably, 0.00 is 
the last numeric value.

If you want the last non-zero numeric value, you can use the following 
normal-entered formula (just press Enter as usual) if the last non-empty 
cell contains a numeric value, not text.

 =LOOKUP(1E+100,1/('\\Pfadc01\company data\ADMINISTRATION\
Excel\Accounts 2012-2013\
Bank 12-13\[2012-2013 Bank balance.xls]PF'!$F:$F<>0),
'\\Pfadc01\company data\ADMINISTRATION\
Excel\Accounts 2012-2013\
Bank 12-13\[2012-2013 Bank balance.xls]PF'!$F:$F)

Autonumber created.. problems in the future?
I managed to create an autonumber in Microsoft CRM. I did this by making a field "Number"(in the database "New_Number") and I published it on the form. Then I went To the SQL server and I changed the field in the table to Identity Yes, Identity seed 1, Identity Increment 1. I locked the field on the form. It worked!
