On sheet2!a1 type =sheet1!a1 - anything you type on sheet1!a1 will appear on sheet2!a1

Posted on Nov 18, 2008

SOURCE: excel formulas

type in "=" and then go to the cell in the 2nd sheet and click on the cell that contains the value you want carried to sheet 1. Then drag copy the forumula in sheet 1 to all the cells you want it to relate to. Now, if you place a value in e.g. A1 of sheet 2, then that same value will appear in A1 of sheet 1.

Good luck.

To have the contents of the cell change from something you input into something else, you would need to put in a macro using VBA. You'll need someone who knows VBA to help with that.

OR... It is a lot easier to get similar results, if you are ok with using a few more cells to do it. The item# will remain where it was entered, and the product name will have to go in a different cell. In that case, you can use a lookup formula.

To do this, lets say your item# is entered in cell 'Sheet1'!C1, and you want the product_name to display in cell 'Sheet1'!D1. On another sheet (lets say sheet2) In cells 'Sheet2'!A1:B5 input the item#'s in the first column (column A1:A5) and input the matching product-names in column B1:B5. This is your lookup data. This sheet can be hidden if you want In cell 'Sheet1'!D1, use a vlookup formula that will look at the item# and find a match in the list, and display the product name for you. =vlookup('Sheet1'!C1,'Sheet2'!$A$1:$B$5,2,false)

This will display N/A# if the number can't be found.

why not? however, you can also insert an apostrophe (') at the start of the equation before copying the entire formula so that the formula will be treated as a text thus preserving all cell references. dont forget to remove the apostrophes after you have pasted them though for the formulas to work again.

Hi saleem_share,

I'm not sure why you would want to use excel to create a P&L, but the same formula would apply to excel as it would for a standard P&L. In one section of the spreadsheet add all of your income accounts. Then Subtract your cost of sales from that. That would equal your Gross Profit. After that add all the rest of your Expenses, and subtract from the Gross Profit, which would give you your net Profit or Loss Example:

Description

Amount

Formula

Sales Product A

1,000.00

Sales Product B

1,000.00

Total Sales

2,000.00

SUM(C1:C2)

Cost of Sales Product A

500.00

Cost of Sales Product B

200.00

Total Cost of Sales

700.00

SUM(C5:C6)

Gross Profit

1,300.00

SUM(C4-C7)

Auto

25.00

Utilities

50.00

Payroll

300.00

Office Supplies

20.00

Total Expenses

395.00

Net Profit

905.00

SUM(C8-C14)

I hope this helps

I'm assuming you'd like to assign a numerical value to cardinal references (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc.).

Best way to do this is to create a quick lookup table on a separate sheet of the same .xls document. Down at the bottom of the page, click on Sheet2 and create a quick table where column A has 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc. and column B has your values.

Now click back to Sheet1 where your data is and in A2 put this formula:

=VLookup(A1, Sheet2!$A$1:$B$x, 2, FALSE)

Note: replace the lower case x in the formula above with the number of the last row of data in your lookup table on Sheet2.

You can copy and paste this formula down the column to calculate your other values.

Hope that helps!

Nope, sorry, although I am truly an expert at Excel formulas, I do not understand what you are trying to end up with in the final cell. We can compare a specified field with two spreadsheets - use named ranges and index/match lookup formulas. But then where you really lose me is in reading "a generic field" to find a match, and then placing what "data from another field" into what "other sheet" - ? See the confusion?

Best way to compare 2 given parameters would be to use a nested if formula, with index/match combo. Here is a simple Excel example of how such a formula could be structured:

Sample Data (columnar arangement):

A1: Part B1: Code C1: Price D1: Find Part E1: Find Code

A2: x B2: 11 C2: 5.00 D2: y E2: 12

A3: x B3: 12 C3: 6.00 D3: y E3: 11

A4: y B4: 11 C4: 7.00 D4: x E4: 12

A5: y B5: 12 C5: 8.00 D5: x E5: 11

To retrieve the price for part y with code 12 and return the value to cell F2, type the following formula in cell F2:

=INDEX($C$2:$C$5,MATCH(D2,IF($B$2:$B$5=E2,$A$2:$A$5),0))

Press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER to enter the formula as an array formula. The formula returns the value 8.00.

To take this one step further, with range names, this example will find one value at a specified location which matches a specific row header value and column header value. Let's say the range is home values (Range=HomeVal), Column A of HomeVal contains street addresses,"row headers" (Range=StAddress), and Row 1 contains dates of the various values that are in the body of the table, "column headers" (Range=Dates). To return the specific value from the range HomeVal to another sheet, where A1=address specified and A2=date specified:

=INDEX(HomeVal,(MATCH($A$1,StAddress,0)),(MATCH($A$2,Dates,0)))

Then make sure to press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER to enter the formula as an array formula - if you only hit enter, these types of formulas will not work properly.

That depends on which version of Excel you are using.

Excel 2003 supports up to 65,335 formulas

Excel 2007 has no limit.

you can communicate between the worksheets which are contained by one workbook (one excel-file).

Communicating between files cannot be done with formula's.

you have to use the reference Do you know how to use it

Mar 31, 2008 | Microsoft Excel for PC

at first select the 1st page data and select data-subtotal from the upper menu list.

then enter the formula as =sum(1stpageSubTotal,2ndpageSubTotal,3rdpageSubTotal) then Press Enter.

If not solved pls get me that data as to reference.

thanks

then enter the formula as =sum(1stpageSubTotal,2ndpageSubTotal,3rdpageSubTotal) then Press Enter.

Dear jois you can make a link from one sheet to other sheet by making a hyperlink. When you will click one cell in first sheet it would shift the sheet in the cell you will fix it.

You can follow this process:

You can follow this process:

- Select a cell that contains the external formula
- Highlight the File path and sheet name in the Formula bar, eg; 'L:\Daves\[Book2.xls]Sheet1'!
- Push Ctrl+C then push Enter.
- Select the range of cells you wish to change the reference in and go to Edit>Replace.
- Select in the Find what box and hold down the Backspace to ensure you do not have a space.
- Push Ctrl+V.
- Do the same in the Replace with box and then edit the file path to the new one needed.
- Click Replace All
