    Pull data from multiple sheets based on cell in Main sheet

    Hello!

    I am trying to create a formula which will allow me to type a word in a cell on the Main sheet, and then pull any row from multiple sheets and display them on the Main sheet. For example, my sheet named Main looks like this:

    A B C D E
    1 Query:
    2 Fruit Store Cost Mode Date



    And there's a sheet for each month with the same format and different data:
    A B C D E
    1 Fruit Store Cost Mode Date
    2 Apple Dominicks 1.99 Bagged 3/16/2014
    3 Apple Piggly Wiggly 2.19 Ala Carte 3/14/2014
    4 Banana Jewel 0.49 Bagged 3/1/2014
    5 Banana Dominicks 0.57 Ala Carte 3/16/2014
    6 Banana Costco 0.69 Ala Carte 3/16/2014
    7 Cantaloupe Jewel 2.99 Ala Carte 3/14/2014
    8 Cantaloupe Dominicks 1.99 Ala Carte 3/1/2014
    9 Eggplant Jewel 0.99 Ala Carte 3/30/2014
    10 Eggplant Dominicks 1.19 Ala Carte 3/30/2014
    11 Eggplant Costco 1.29 Ala Carte 3/21/2014
    12 Eggplant Safeway 0.79 Ala Carte 3/16/2014
    13 Pears Jewel 1.19 Ala Carte 3/14/2014
    14 Pears Dominicks 1.59 Bagged 3/1/2014
    15 Pears Piggly Wiggly 0.99 Ala Carte 3/30/2014
    16 Rhubarb Jewel 0.99 Ala Carte 3/14/2014
    17 Rhubarb Piggly Wiggly 0.59 Ala Carte 3/14/2014
    18 Rhubarb Costco 0.89 Ala Carte 3/14/2014
    19 Tomatoes Jewel 1.99 Ala Carte 3/1/2014
    20 Tomatoes Safeway 1.69 Bagged 3/30/2014
    21 Tomatoes Dominicks 1.89 Carton 3/27/2014


    ... and so on. On my main sheet in Cell B1, I want to type a fruit name, such as Banana, and have every row in every sheet with Banana in column A,pulled and displayed on the Main sheet. Firstly, is this even possible with a formula? and second, any guidance would be most appreciated.

    I think this needs VBA/Macro. A formula won't do what you are asking.

    OK, I kinda thought so. I will mark as SOLVED and repost over there, unless I can move it?
