Crosssheet formula?
Hello Smartsheets Team,
I'm curious if it's possible to enter a value on one sheet, and have it go through a formula on another sheet, then return the end result back to my main sheet. Basically I have a sheet with multiple vendors and associated formulas for each vendor to get a final price (there's many details for the formula for each vendor, so I was attempting to avoid a long formula and extra columns on my main sheet). If I enter a value on my main sheet in a specific column and it matches a certain vendor in another column, I would need it to use a specific formula for the vendor it matches with. Has anyone done something like this before/is it possible? Any thoughts would be appreciated!
Essentially: If I enter an item price in column A, and vendor in column B is "Vendor 1", use the formula for "Vendor 1" from Sheet B and return the final value back to my main sheet.

Hi @Matt Desjardin,
By the sounds of it, an INDEX(MATCH()) or VLOOKUP crosssheet formula should accomplish what you intend. Below you can see an example of INDEX(MATCH()) usage that hopefully you can apply/adapt to your particular environment.
However, if you need further advise on how to implement any of these or these examples can be of help, please provide some captures of both sheets and I'll try to tweak the formula.
I hope that this can be of help
Cheers!
