How do I automatically pull user contact information from another sheet

Options

Hello, I have 3 or more sheets sharing contact information i.e Name, email, job title, address etc. Everytime I want to use this information in another sheet, I have to create the same entries. I have managed to create the name as a contact making it reflect in other sheets but I am still stuggling pulling the other details i.e. Job title and address. I have also tried using the "copy rows to a new worksheet" workflow but this feature moves all the columns in the current sheet to the destination sheet. I have to delete the unwanted columns in the destination sheet.

Is there an easier of doing this? I am now left with one option - try using vlookup to pull this data.

    Hi @Jotham Wadongo

    The easiest way I’d recommend is either a VLOOKUP or a combination of INDEX/MATCH.

    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, andree@workbold.com)

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!
