Hi all,

I'm a bit stuck, again ! hope you can help with this one, i've searched the posts, but none of the threads don't seen to achieve the result i need.

What I am trying to do is is 'import' all the jobs at "COM" status to another sheet.
You'll see in the example below I have book2
Book2.xls
ABCDEF
1JobNoStatusDate
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
10
COM

I want to 'import' only the jobs at "COM" status to this sheet, including obviously the job numbers and the date they were completed, from this sheet (reports).
Book2.xls
ABCDEF
1jobnocustomerregiondatastatusdate
222221111allensouthCOM02/01/2009
377770000smithsouthCOM02/01/2009

711112222hutchsouthPAS02/01/2009

reports

Thanks to a member of the forum, I can do this on the same sheet, ( sorting out all the COM status jobs ) with the following formula<B>=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(A3,Sky.Report!\$A\$381:\$B\$647,1,FALSE)),"",(VLOOKUP(A3,Sky.Report!\$A\$381:\$B\$647,1,FALSE)))</B>
But how do you get it to work from another sheet ?

### Excel Facts

Enter current date or time
Ctrl+: enters current time. Ctrl+; enters current date. Use Ctrl+: Ctrl+; Enter for current date & time.

Use Advanced Filter. Choose Filter to new location. Note, AF must originate from the destination sheet. For a more robust approach, you might use MSQuery!!

Hi lenze,

I have no idea what you have just said <img class="inlineimg" src="images/icons/icon9.gif" alt="Unhappy" border="0" />

I was hoping there was a formula that would simply lookup the job no, and return COM with an IF statement, like if job no in column A has COM in column E, and return date from colmn F.

" I'm a Noobie, please be gentle " <img class="inlineimg" src="images/icons/icon7.gif" alt="Smile" border="0" />

Control+shift+enter, not just enter:

=INDEX(\$F\$2:\$F\$7,MATCH(1,IF(\$A\$2:\$A\$7=JobNo,IF(\$E\$2:\$E\$7="COM",1)),0))

Hi man,

the previous post was correct. you don't need to copy your data to another spreadsheet. just work with the existed data. what you need is to filter your data. do this steps:
2. on the main menu choose "DATA"->Filter->Autofilter. click on that.
3. from drop-down list choose "COM", or whatever you like.

tell me if it what you were looking for.

Excel contains over 450 functions, with more added every year. That’s a huge number, so where should you start? Right here with this bundle.
