Automation to different sheet with Certain Columns.

Options

Hey,

I am setting up a new sheet specific for my client. I need to set up an automation with certain columns to copy over when a column is triggered. (Not all columns)

Everything I am finding is how to automate & copy over an entire row which I do not want to do what so ever, if someone could help me with this, It would save me sooooo much time and effort that I do not have at the moment. I just want to be able to copy certain columns from an existing sheet to an new sheet. Not all the columns.

Please help!

    Hi @C_Herrell

    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 week!
