Hi!

I want to be able to make cells move together if I change the value of one of the headings. I currently have the heading set up to come from another sheet using a vlookup. When I insert a column on the other sheet, (say, Jim) the second table below is what I get, but what I want to occur is the third table below.
JeffMarkPhil
Height194
175166
Weight817660
JeffJimMarkPhil
Height194175166
Weight817660
JessJimMarkPhil
Height194175166
Weight817660

<tbody>
</tbody>

Any help would be much appreciated :)

Thanks

Something like in B2 of your new sheet. Copy across and down as required:

=IFERROR(INDEX(Sheet1!$B$2:$D$3,MATCH($A2,Sheet1!$A$2:$A$3,0),MATCH(B$1,Sheet1!$B$1:$D$1,0)),"")

With the primary table in Sheet1!A1:E3

The primary table is more like below

NameCityLevel
JeffPerth5
MarkLondon2
PhilNew York4

<tbody>
</tbody>

And these Names become the heading of the table in the original post with the formula:
=IFERROR(VLOOKUP(COLUMN()-2,'Sheet1'!$C$5:$F$50,ROW(),0), "")
and dragged across.

So then what I'm trying to achieve is if I add a row to this table,


NameCityLevel
JeffPerth5
Jim
Mark
London2
PhilNew York4

<tbody>
</tbody>

The second table (in the original post), will react as in the third table in the original post, whereas what occurs now is in the second table.

Will your solution still work in this context? Sorry I should have gone into more detail initially

Thanks a bunch! :)

Be better frame and contextualize this questions:
Hi,
I have data in a primary table structured like below:

NameCityLevel
JeffPerth5
MarkLondon2
PhilNew York4

<tbody>
</tbody>



The names in which, are being input into another sheet using a vlookup, as below:


JeffMarkPhil
Height194175166
Weight817660

<tbody>
</tbody>


With the following formula: =IFERROR(VLOOKUP(COLUMN()-2,'Sheet1'!$C$5:$F$50,ROW(),0), "")
dragged across, accounting for small formatting deviations.

What I'm trying to achieve, is if I add a row to my first table, as below:


NameCityLevel
JeffPerth5
Jim
MarkLondon2
PhilNew York4

<tbody>
</tbody>


The second table, will react like below:


JeffJimMarkPhil
Height194175166
Weight817660

<tbody>
</tbody>


Instead of what I'm currently getting below:


JeffJimMarkPhil
Height194175166
Weight817660

<tbody>
</tbody>



So, essentially, I want the data below the heading in the second sheet, to move along with the heading if a new Name is added on the first sheet.

Sorry if this is a little confusing to follow

Thanks :) :)
