Hello Everyone,

Is there a formula in excel (2007) where I can return an entire row from one tab based off of the row being highlighted, or an indicator (like an "X" at then end of the row)?

For example, tab 1 (which is empty) looks like this:

_A..................B................C
Part #.......Description......Model


Then, Tab 2 - 50 looks like this:

__A................B.................C...........D
Part#........Description.......Model......RoHS?
1245............PCB................T...........X
4459............Nut................T

Each row that has the "X" in it is also highlighted blue.

Now, what I would like to do is have a formula or an easy way to populate Tab 1 with the information in Tab 2 - 50. So if the row has an "X" in the RoHS colum, then all the info from that row will be pulled into Tab 1. Hopefully that makes sense. Sorry for all the periods (.) but I couldn't get the format to line up in here...

If any of you have an idea or know if it is possible, please let me know.

Thanks!

You would have to use an event macro to copy the data to tab 1 when an x is entered.
If you're not proficient at writing macro's. then I would suggest a manual approach of using filters on the column, showing all the X's and then copy en-mass to tab 1.
You can also get the lines to highlight in blue by using conditional formatting.
Highlight the table, go to conditional formatting. Note the Activecell (white one in the block).
Choose New Rule
By Formula
Formula is =or($D1="X",$D1="x")
Click on Fill
Choose blue.
Click Apply - OK.

See how that goes.
