I have multiple worksheets that I want to extract data from based on set criteria.

All worksheets have similar column titles.

What I want is the following...

column A = Names
column B = Weight
column C = Location


In worksheet1 if column A = "charlie", then take the information that is associated with this (columns B and C) and place it in my summary worksheet under the appropriate headings.

Can you help me out!!!
 

Excel Facts

Which came first: VisiCalc or Lotus 1-2-3?
Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston debuted VisiCalc in 1979 as a Visible Calculator. Lotus 1-2-3 debuted in the early 1980's, from Mitch Kapor.

Have you tried vlookup.

In cell A2 of your summary sheet you would have "charlie" then in column b use the formula =VLOOKUP(A2,Sheet2!A:C,2,FALSE) in column c use the same formula but change the 2 to 3. You should be able to copy this as far down as you need. If you want to look stuff up on other sheets, you will need to change the name of the sheet in the formula.
