I'm trying to create a sheet that uses some but not all of the columns/information from a different sheet. Is there any way to use the copy row function but copy over only the columns I need? Or is it all or nothing?
Hi @Ariana Arden
I hope you're well and safe!
Unfortunately, it's not possible now, but it's an excellent idea!
Please submit an Enhancement Request when you have a moment.
Here's a possible workaround or workarounds
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!

I am trying to calculate two fields in SmartSheet (a dollar amount by a tax percentage in decimal format). I then would like to divide the calculation in half. For example, I would like my hotel rate $109 times the tax rate of 12% to be multiplied together to get the total hotel rate and then divide that total rate in…
