formula to pull data from a sheet when criteria is met

Options

I've got a sheet for tracking work changes and when they have been approved, I want to set up a formula in a 'helper' sheet to get just the key data of the work change

I've set up the below formula, but it only pulls through data from the 1st row - how do i get it to work for all rows?

=IFERROR(VLOOKUP("Yes", {Variation & SI Tracker Range 3}, 2, false), "")

    Hi @Archie

    I hope you're well and safe!

    You could use cross-sheet formulas combined with either a VLOOKUP or INDEX/MATCH structure to connect the sheets, and when you update the source sheet, it will reflect on the destination sheet.

    To connect them row by row, you'd use an Autonumber Column in the Source sheet and add a so-called helper column to manually add the row id on as many rows as you think you need in the Destination sheet.

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic week!

    Best,
