i am doing some contracts administration. i have contracts
with codes next to them. for example cell A1 contains the code
and cell B1 contains the name of the contract. i would like the codes to appear on seven differents sheets.
i would be entering new contract codes on regular basis.
i would like to enter the code on one sheet only and the new sheets to be updated
with the same new code automatically. i have tried entering fomulas to do the following
but this restricts the filter function because it detects the codes as formulas not values.
is their a way of doing this. Maybe a macro !!!!!

Thank you for your help regards

How about just pasting a link
on all your sheets.
Im not sure what your looking for,what are you filtering for and how are you doing it.Let me know if you need more help.

Hi steve

i have tried doing that. But sorry not when i filer but whne i do a search, the function does not work.
because there is a link in the cells not values. the reason i do a search
because i might have hundreds of contract codes, so when i want to look for
a contract i do a search for its code.

so i want is to enter the new contract name and code, however i would like
the code and name to appear on another 4 or 5 different sheets. i would like to automate the process
because i will be entering hundreds of contract codes and names.

Thank you for your help

It sound like the match, index and vlookup functions mayhelp you. You can use the to lookup the information bymatching your names or contract codes.
