I have a list of inventory on sheet 3 with prices, location, seller, price, blah blah blah.

Each one with an inventory #. On the first page i have an invoice the same categories.
I'd just like to know the best way to make it so if i write the inv # in the first box A13.
I could have the rest of the boxes fill out ( A-J ), using inventory numbers and info found on sheet 3
(or is there another way?).

Should I be using excel at all? any help would be just great, Thank you.

(sry, am using excel 2000, on Win Xp SP2)

Whats the difference between CONCAT and CONCATENATE?
The newer CONCAT function can reference a range of cells. =CONCATENATE(A1,A2,A3,A4,A5) becomes =CONCAT(A1:A5)

Reaper_13_6,

Have you looked at a VLOOKUP formula?

Thanks a lot once i knew what it was called i was able to find what i needed easily.

Now i just need a way to make #N/A not appear.

I've read a lot about it so far but none of the solutions have worked for me. ill keep looking.

Thanks again.

Reaper_13_6,

Here's a common method for returning a zero value if the vlookup formula doesn't find an exact match:

Code:
=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(LUVALUE, LURANGE, RETCOL, FALSE)),0,VLOOKUP(LUVALUE, LURANGE, RETCOL, FALSE))
