Hi hi

in my opinion the best solution is to use vlookup. it is simple but very very powerful. the only drawback is that you should have unique code for stock codes i.e. no duplication is allowed in the main sheet . for example you should have a small data base of two columns in a separate sheet say sheet1 the frist clomn a is for the code and the second column b is for the description.
and you go to the search sheet beside the cell that you write in the code say a1.write in b1 =vlookup(a1,sheet1!a:b,2,false). this should end your problem isa.

good luck

Hi,
Could you write the column names from both the sheets seprately, and one data eg. that you need. It would be easier to understand the problem.


Thanks

Excel formula related to a date range


Use the IF and Date functions together. On sheet 3, put the birthday (3/15/1954) in cell B1, put the beginning date (1/1/1946) in cell C1 and the ending date (12/31/1964) in cell D1.
Then on Sheet 1, but the following formula in the cell you want an X to be placed in.
=IF(AND(Sheet3!B1>=Sheet3!C1,(Sheet3!B1<=Sheet3!D1)),"X"," ").
Make sure you type the formula Exactly as it appears.

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.

Copying data from one sheet to another if two fileds match


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.

You can refer to cells that are on other worksheets by perpending the name of the worksheet followed by an exclamation point (!) to the cell reference. In the following example, the AVERAGE worksheet function calculates the average value for the range C1:C10 on the worksheet named Marketing in the same workbook.

default.aspx?assetid=za010939481033 Refers to the worksheet named Marketing default.aspx?assetid=za010939491033 Refers to the range of cells between C1 and C10, inclusively
  1. Click the cell in which you want to enter the formula.
  2. In the formula bar (formula bar: A bar at the top of the Excel window that you use to enter or edit values or formulas in cells or charts. Displays the constant value or formula stored in the active cell.) default.aspx?assetid=za060515351033, type = (equal sign).
  3. Click the tab for the worksheet to be referenced.
  4. Select the cell or range of cells to be referenced.

Excel Sort Across Sheets


Hi Raymond, I have a solution for you. Asuming your 'main' sheet is Sheet1. On Sheet2, in the same line as your data on sheet1 (i.e. A5 on sheet1 is JIM), then on A5 on sheet2, enter a link ( the = ) and enter. copy this formula down. Do the same with Sheet3 linking to Sheet1. When you sort Sheet1, Sheet 2 and 3 will follow. Hope this helps. Regards DeltaC
