Hello, I came here to ask for help about a list problem.

I made a list in a sheet which we can say is called Dashboard.

Then in another sheet which we can say is called Costs.

In Dashboard there is this

1 2 3 4 5
1 Food Costs

2 LIST

3 LIST

Imagine the LISTs are list options.

And in Income there is this

A B C
1 Food Prices Wanted?

2 Cake £3.50 No

3 Pie £1.50 Yes

4 Tart £0.50 Yes

I want the list in Dashboard to only show the options in Income that have Yes under the wanted column and not the options that have No.

Thank you in advance for any help and please explain how your thingies help please. :)

Can a formula spear through sheets?
Use =SUM(January:December!E7) to sum E7 on all of the sheets from January through December

Welcome to MrExcel.

Please post your real data instead of pseudo data. That way you are more likely to get an immediate solution rather than a protracted solution because your problem hasn't been fully understood.

I can't exactly do that as I don't have Excel at home and this is for a school project thing. My apologies.

Well, try to remember what data you have and post that. And please use letters for columns and numbers for rows rather than vice versa.

I edited the data slightly. But that's all I can really remember. Please tell me if I can add anything more to tell you.

On sheet Income enter this formula in D2 and copy down:

=IF(COUNTIF(C$2:C2,"Yes")>=1,ROWS(D$2:D2),"")

Enter this formula in E2 and copy down:

=IF(ROWS(A$2:A2)>COUNTIF(C$2:C$4,"Yes"),"",INDEX(A$2:A$6,SMALL(D$2:D$4,ROWS(D$2:D2))))

Define the name List that refers to:

=OFFSET(Income!$E$2,0,0,COUNTA(Income!$E$2:$E$4)-COUNTBLANK(Income!$E$2:$E$4),1)

Then on sheet Dashboard use Data Validation with Allow List and Source =List.
