Link an entire column from one sheet to another

Hey guys,

I have 2 sheets, one is VS EE (the source sheet) and the other is VS BD (the destination sheet)

I'm trying to link a col "Epic" from VS EE to col "Epic" in VS BD. Linking won't work for me because I need the new rows also to be linked.

Another thing is that I don't have any cols to match. I just need that col "Epic" in VS EE will be also col "Epic" in VS BD, and if I edit/delete/add rows it will updated also in the destination sheet.

Thank you very much

    Hi @Nitzan

    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.

    To connect them row by row, you'd use an Autonumber Column in the Source sheet and add a so-called helper column to manually add the row id on as many rows as you think you need in the Destination sheet.

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic week!

    Best,
