How to reference entire column from another sheet

Hi, I'm new to smartsheet and i would like to know how can i reference an entire column from another sheet, no criteria needed.

I just want to return the data from sheet 1 column 1 to sheet 2 column 1, is there a simple way to achieve this?

I have tried to use =INDEX({SHEET 1 RANGE 1}, 1), it will only return data from the first row.

    Hi @Calvin Saw

    I hope you're well and safe!

    You can do it in two ways.

    • Cell-linking, but that won't include new rows (if you need that)
    • 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.

    Would any of those options work/or help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!
