Hi all.

Another (probably) simple query from someone who doesnt know better!

I am trying to get a sheet to pick up a lot of data that is on the same line as a unique reference number. However, on my destination sheet, I already have all the reference numbers, all I want to do is link in another value on the same line of the other page. Eg:

SOURCE DATA SHEET - called "Alpha"

Column A, Row 8 has 12-2002
Column I, Row 8 has 9.99

DESTINATION DATA SHEET - called "Omega"

Column A, Row 17 has 12-2002
Column I, Row 17 WANTS 9.99

Now, in my Omega sheet, within Column A are all the reference numbers which want to have their new data picked up automatically in Column I.

However, within Column A in Omega are a number of other reference figures which have no new data to be applied to them, so the formula needs to intelligently pick up on that reference number alone, then inserting the new figure.

Can anybody help me please?

Many thanks in advance

Chris

Sorry, should have explained, what I meant was:

DESTINATION DATA SHEET - called "Omega"

Column A, Row 17 has in its cell : 12-2002
Column I, Row 17 wants to have in its cell : 9.99

Many many thanks in advance folks

In cell I17 of sheet Omega type:

=VLOOKUP(A17,Alpha!A1:I12,9,FALSE)

assuming your data is in rows 1 to 12 of sheet Alpha - change this reference to suit.
