# Formula Needed to copy data from a cell based on data entered into another cell

1. ## Formula Needed to copy data from a cell based on data entered into another cell

Sheet2 I7:I1006 = formula

Sheet2 H7:H1006 = Where the data will be entered. I want to use multiple entries: "S1" through "S10"

Sheet1 C5:C14 = Exisiting data. Each cell with have a different word in it. "S1" will correspond with with "C5", "S2" with "C6" and so on.

When I enter "S1" into Sheet2 H7, then Sheet2 I7 will show the data existing in Sheet1 C5. and so on

The formula provided by vamosj may work but its lengthy

In Sheet 2 type s1 s2 .....s10 in N7 to N16 and
type c5 c6 .....c14 in O7 to O16

then in I7 type this
=INDIRECT("Sheet1!"&LOOKUP(H7,N7:N16,O7:O16))

I don't know how to attach a file while replying to thread , but i hope u got the idea
