Cell Linking / Autopopulate

Options

Can I use cell linking to auto-populate the data from my main sheet to a second sheet? As I enter new accounts in my main sheet, I would like specific columns to auto-populate in the second sheet. Is cell linking the best option to perform this task?

    Hi @La Toya

    I hope you're well and safe!

    It depends. You would need to "Activate the cells" in the main sheet to be able to cell-link those that don't have a value yet.

    Another option would be to use Cross-Sheet formulas (VLOOKUP or INDEX/MATCH)

    How much information is that you want to link?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic week!

    Best,

    Good morning

    I want the second sheet to be a mirror copy of the main sheet minus some financial data. As I enter a new client, I want the information to auto-populate into the second sheet. There are about 30 columns that I need to auto-populate into the second sheet.
