    What if formula/function

    How would I do a what if formula using two sheets ? Would I have to put the data from both sheets on to 1 sheet? How would I do a formula stating if true the original data will show and if false the test data will show up. Any help and suggestions is greatly appreciated.

    Re: What if formula/function

    Hi, welcome to the forum

    Hopefully, this will get you headed in the right direction (you didnt give us much to work on lol)

    =IF(Sheet1!A1="xxx",Sheet1!A2,Sheet2!A2)

    This is saying that if the contents of Sheet1 cell A1 = "xxx" (replace with your own criteria), then use Sheet1 cell A2, otherwise use Sheet2 cell A2
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)

    Thank you for you help. I appreciate!! I just have to ask so I do not need to put the data on a separate spreadsheet? Will I need to link anything?

    Re: What if formula/function

    So I tried the earlier suggestion w/ no luck. I'm
    Sure it's me.
    Here's what I have.
    2 spreadsheets; 1 w/ original data & 1 w/ test data.
    What would be the best way to do a what if formula/
    Function. If true original data would show up & if
    false test data would show up? Would I need to link
    the 2 sheet or create 2 more sheets w/ the data, that
    would seem redundant. What is the best way to write
    the formula?
    Thank you & I appreciate all help/suggestions.

    Thanks for the file

    OK where would the TRUE/FALSE criteria be found, and where/how would you want the results shown?
