    Question extract certain information to another sheet, and for it to automatically update

    Hi!

    Just hoping to get some help, my skills in excel are elementary.

    I have a huge table of data and I'm hoping to extract certain information to another sheet, and for it to automatically update.
    I am unable to upload a table as its for work and all info is sensitive, so I'll try my best to explain using column names.

    My defining column is column H. If data in the cell = X exactly, then I'd like it to copy some of the information from that row too, multiple columns: A, B, C, D, E, F, G, I and RZ (and H). If data does not = X, then skip that row.

    I did some digging and experimented with VLOOKUP and ZLOOKUP however I am unsure how to implement copying the rest of the data.

    All help is appreciated!

    Re: Not sure what function to use to achieve this

    We don't need the actual file - create a small mock-up with made up data in the same columns as you have now, along with the same sheet names, and then explain in the file what you are trying to achieve. You can attach this sample file to one of your posts by following the instructions in the yellow banner at the top of the screen.

    Re: extract certain information to another sheet, and for it to automatically update

    when you do you Vlookup the number at the end is the Column that you are returning info from... So if you are looking in K:X and you want to return K then 1, If you want to return L then 2 etc...
    So if the lookup returns what you want in column K, use the next number for L...
    Also remember as you copu=y and paste - cell references in the formula will adjust - so utilize $
    example: vlookup($A2,Sheet2!$A$2:$Z$500,1,False)
    If this solves your issue, Mark thread as Solved & Add Reputation.

    Thanks!
