Populating a column in one sheet from a column in another sheet


I have 2 sheets, Techs and Totals. I want to:

  • Populate a column called Tech/RSM List in the Totals sheet from the column called Tech Name in the Tech sheet.

I guess the question is, how do I just reference the row in an Index formula. If I do:

=INDEX({Tech/RSM List Range 1}, 1) I will get a valid return.

If I do this:

=INDEX({Tech/RSM List Range 1}, @row) I get an error.

The RSM/Tech List sheet is constantly updated and need to just look at the rows, no matter how many there are. I want to make this a column formula.

Thank you in advance.

    Hi @Justin Mauzy

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Feel free to share it with me like the other, or is it the same thing?

    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 week!

    Thanks for the quick response. All is well and I hope every is with you also.

    Here is the 1st sheet named Tech/RSM List:

    Here is the 2nd sheet named Tech Totals:

    I have this formula in the New Tech column on this sheet.

    =IFERROR(INDEX({Tech/RSM List Range 1}, 1), "")

    The reference is looking at the Full Name column on the Tech/RSM List sheet.

    I want the formula to look at the Full Name column in the Tech/RSM List sheet and then take those names (no matter how many there are) and put them in the New Tech column on the Tech Totals sheet.

    Thank you.
