hi,

I'm looking for a formula to display a range of cells if condition is met.

For example IF A1 equals to "test" then display range F1:G4 in range B1:D5.

Any ideas?

Thank you

The range F1:G4 is 8 cells but B1:D5 is 15 cells. What are you trying to do exactly?

It's a form of data validation to display only information that's relevant.

let's say you have 3 tables (or ranges) and you don't need to display all of them at once because they won't fit on one page so you can display only the one that you need based on X value.

That still doesn't explain the 7 cell difference between the 2 ranges. Can you provide a sample?

Sorry,
Let's assume ranges are equal, slightly different example:


Display range based on A1 in range A2:C9 from range O2:O9 or range V2:Y9


ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVXYZAAABACAD
1CatDogCat
20.20.30.50.50.40.30.20.30.5
30.10.990.40.30.40.50.10.990.4
40.30.30.10.22.53.50.30.30.1
50.50.40.50.4
60.10.20.10.2

OK.

Select each range in your table, excluding the header and name it using the value in the header.
Make sure you have any blanks in your table as ="" (If you don't do this, you will end up with zeros in your result cells)

In Columns A2:C, select the max amount of rows you would need and enter the following formula:
=INDIRECT(A1) and hit CTRL-SHIFT-ENTER rathern than just Enter.

Select Columns A:C and make a new Conditional Formatting Formula of =ISNA(A1) and format the font to white to hide all #N/A that will result from where there is no data in that spot.
