Checking a box based on data from a cell in a different sheet

Hello,

I have two sheets. On one I have a column noting the status of a contract, in drop-down style. I would like for when the status is complete on this sheet, for it to check a box on another sheet. Is this possible?

    Hi Tanya,

    Yes, it’s possible with a cross-sheet formula.

    Can you describe your process in more detail and maybe share the sheet(s)/copies of the sheet(s) or some screenshots? (Delete/replace any confidential/sensitive information before sharing) That would make it easier to help. (share too, [email protected])

    I hope that helps!

    Have a fantastic week!

  • Andree,

    In the Mkt Status column on this one, when the drop down "Complete" is selected.....

    I would like it to check the box on this one in the Signed for 2020 Column

    Thanks for your help!

  • make the Signed for 2020 a function using a cross-sheet reference to the Mkt Status field

  • Yes this is what I am trying to do, however I'm not sure how to write it as it also needs to find the correct vendor by vendor # or name. I know VLOOKUP and IF, but not together, or guessing there is an easier way?

    Did you get it working?

  • Hi Andree,

    The files are too big to delete sensitive info and share, will the screen shots above work?

  • Andree,

    I figured this out and shared copies of both to you. When the Mkt. Status on the rebate tracker is marked complete, I'd like it to check the box on the Marketing Suppliers sheet.

  • That's what I needed Paul, thank you! Again.......
