Please find the example photo

I would like if there is a formula that can auto fill and input data in blank columns/same row once i type the phone number (in column phone) by calling or looking up for the data from other rows in same sheet (or from other data pase sheet) taht engaged with same phone number.

For Example: In the giving screenshot example i want same data in row (1) to be auto filled in row (2) once i type the phone number .

Unfofunatly , autmation feature to change cell is complicated for my requirment as I have a lot of clients data where i wonder if can call their data in easier way with formulla code or other workaround that find the .

Thank you

    Hi @Waleed

    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.

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic week!
