# Getting information from multiple sheets

#### quintin

##### Board Regular
Good day,
Regular excel
I am needing assistance with the following issues. I have three sheets with data in them, the first one has a list of golf courses, the second has the courses (the name, par, slope, rating). On the third sheet is where I would like to enter the data as I played. Col A the date, col B a drop-down menu with a list of the courses, col C which tee, col D par of the course, col E the course rating, col F the slope. Thereafter are col’s that need to be filled in, in order to complete your round, and then at the end, you’ll be able to work out other information and handicap.

I am needing assistance with col’s c,d,e &f. so that once you select the course in the drop-down menu and selecting the color tee in col c, it should put the rest of the information from the other sheets into the blank spaces.

It goes down for 20 enters, from this I would then be able to work out other info.

I have tried the if function, index, match, and others, but I'm not sure.

I thank you for any assistance in advance.

### Excel Facts

VLOOKUP to Left?
Use =VLOOKUP(A2,CHOOSE({1,2},\$Z\$1:\$Z\$99,\$Y\$1:\$Y\$99),2,False) to lookup Y values to left of Z values.

Thank you for the formula's, I did everything as you have explained. However, I can only put info in the first cell B2, thereafter you are able to use the drop-down menu but, no information is placed in the other cells. Find attached screen shot.
Many thanks

I thought with maximum 20 rows you were going to just do one course at a time.
For the rows where there is no Course Name I need some reference after the first row. If there's always two tees for a course, or you only play one course a day and the date is repeated for every row where you expect data then I can figure something out.

Can you share the other sheets using XL2BB

Its works however, what I would like it to do is.

Col A is date

Col B is course (which is a drop-down menu)

Col C is the tee you would be teeing off from.

So once you have chosen your course, then in the next col C you would then have to choose (eg on which course colors may vary) See example

Course one Tee Red par of the course 68 course rating 62,4 slope 112

Course one Tee blue par of the course 68 course rating 61,4 slope 109

Other course may have up to four tee off areas.

Once you have selected the color tee then it should put the relevant information into col’s D (par of the course), E (course rating) and E (slope)

On a separate worksheet I have a list of the courses and etc

Col A course

Col B tees

Col C par of the course

Col D rating

Col E slope

Eg col A col B Col C Col D Col E

course one Tee red par of the course course rating slope

course one tee blue par of the course course rating slope

course two tee green par of the course course rating slope

course two tee blue par of the course course rating slope

and so it goes on with a total of 13 courses, however, the list is made up of 42, meaning that most of the courses have more than 2 tee off colors, the most been 4 tee off areas/colors.

I hope this makes more sense and must apologies for not been clear in the beginning.
Thank you

NOTES:
1. You may want to lock the formulae cells as they're in the middle of your data entry area.
2. If a Tee is selected which is not valid for the course then no data is retrieved.

Good day,
I would just like to thank you for your patience, and your assistance.
I know a few things about excel, but there is always room for improvement.
Thank You

You're welcome!
...and please ignore the formula in C8 as it was left over from a previous iteration.
