How to create a search command box sheet to input one factor and display results specific to that factor

Hi All,

In case my subject line may not be self explanatory, apologies for that, I shall try to explain it better below.

I have a data dump of a sheet. I want to create a sheet where I can get a summary of specific criteria/columns based on an input. I believe I would need to have an input text field button where I would need to type in this number. Based on this number, I would like this summary sheet to display the corresponding values for this input.

Probably have an "ok/enter" button which runs lookups the corresponding values in the data for my input.

The purpose of the sheet would be to quickly provide a reference to the inputs corresponding values rather than having to search and find in the data sheet.

I have seen versions of such click and find excel sheets, dont know what these would be called formally.

Any help / guidance on this would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

The "number" you are searching for ... do all of the 'numbers' exist in the same column or are they spread out
all over the sheet ?

Once the 'number' is found ... is the goal to copy the row where the number is located and paste it to a sheet whose tab
name is the same as the number ?
