Good morning all,

First post here. Let me cut straight to the chase.

I am trying to create a monthly menu on one worksheet and an inventory stock holdings on another sheet. what i would like to do is whenever a menu item is added to the monthly menu, certain items are deducted from the inventory stock holdings. here is an example;

On Wednesday 15th January i plan on cooking steak fried rice. the ingredients i want to deduct from the stock holdings are:
Steak x 2, Rice x 1, Peas x 1, Onion x 2.

The ingredients are listed similar to the table below on worksheet 2:

Food Item
Qty
Steak
2
Rice
1
Peas
1
Onion
2

<tbody>
</tbody>

I have no clue what formular to use if any, something along the lines of steak fried rice = (Steak x 2, Rice x 1, Peas x 1, Onion x 2).

i do not have that much experience with excel, and was hoping you experts could help.

Regards,

Shadowmeister.
