Hi,
I have a list of data approx 9000 lines long (32 columns), and have a seperate sheet that allows a user to input a code. This then retrieves their data item using vlookup(). I would like to let the user then amend the contents of one of the fields, thus updating the original data list. Is this possible?

thanks

Hi Andrew,

Once you've updated the Lookup table, dont you have to re-instate the formula in the changed cell in H2:I2, or am I misunderstanding?

I assumed that the lookup formula was in another cell, eg B2. But I may be wrong.
