Collaborate (specific cells) in 2 different sheets


Hello - Thank you

2 separate sheets (I and others are admins).

Built in automation to copy a row as needed based on project.

After the row is copied from destination sheet to source sheet I would like to Update/Collaborate certain cells with status updates and toggle BOTH ways.

Or add new text in the source sheet and have the updates ADD in the destination sheet.

Essentially: I would like to update the status of a few cells from a particular shared row in both sheets back and forth.

Hope that makes sense?

    Hi @Morris R

    I hope you're well and safe!

    One potential option could be a report. (easiest method)

    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!
