Would Like to Copy a value from one location to another weekly

Options

Hello!

I have 2 sheets SHEETA and SHEETB.

SHEETA has a ton of data in it and I want to take a value from one cell inside or the sheet summary it and copy it weekly to another sheet.

I know I can copy rows but that is not an option for me.

Is there another method I could utilize to automate this?

    Hi @Christopher Neal

    I hope you're well and safe!

    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.

    Another option would be to use so-called helper sheets. In short, copy the row to a helper sheet and then use my method described previously to get the values you need to another helper sheet and then copy/move the row from that sheet to the main destination sheet.

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!

    Best,
