# Is it possible to link cell data?

#### mbrittb

##### Board Regular
Maybe I have called this the wrong thing. What I am wanting to do is to "link" two cells together such that if I type data into one of them (either one) that same data is "replicated" in the other.

Is it possible to do this?

### Excel Facts

Why does 9 mean SUM in SUBTOTAL?
It is because Sum is the 9th alphabetically in Average, Count, CountA, Max, Min, Product, StDev.S, StDev.P, Sum, VAR.S, VAR.P.
I am not sure if you mean this as simple as it seems?

In cell B1 type "=A1"
Then whatever you type in A1 it will appear in B1.

Hi Michael,
Then what will happen if mbrittb is entering value in B1 itself?

More expanation is needed. Why do you need to type anything in B1?

Maybe enter something in A1 or B1, then if you want you could have in the C1 cell =CONCATENATE(A1," ",B1)

Hi Michael,
Because it is said by mbrittb that:
if I type data into one of them (either one) that same data is "replicated" in the other.

I see.
Not sure this is possible?

As a workaround, (if there is no other way....) try this.
Suppose you need to have the same value in A1 and B1. Use the formula "=C1" in both of them and enter the value in C1.

Yeah, I had already thought about that, but I was trying to avoid creating ANOTHER sheet just to enter the data.

I figued it probably wasn't possible, but I thought I would check with those that are more Excel savy than I am .

Thanks,

Hi

How about a sheet event?
Code:
``````Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Address = "\$A\$1" Then Range("b1") = Target.Value
If Target.Address = "\$B\$1" Then Range("a1") = Target.Value
End Sub``````

Put a number in A1 and it will appear in B1. Put a number in B1 and it will appear in A1.

Now that I hadn't thought of. I'll give it a shot.

Thanks,
