If values are there in a cross sheet, Populate cell


I need a sheet to populate off the values of another sheet IF the site code is in both then i want the site code to populate multiple rows in the collumn with information

IF ABC1 has 1 Charger Populate cell 2

If ABC2 has 1 charger Populate cell 3

I want this to be done fully automatically without having to put in other information into the sheet.

    Do you want something like INDEX/MATCH function? It looks up an array and returns a result based on a criteria.

    I don’t think a index match will work because there is no other data in the sheet for it to go off of, I want it to be automatic without having to manually fill in index matches every time a new site is added.

    Hi @Archie123456

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Is it only between two sheets?

    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 weekend!
