    Question Moving data to another worksheet

    Hi. I guess like many, I come to this forum having encountered an issue i can't resolve. A little background to this question:- I have only recently felt able to enter formulae and get a spreadsheet to be useful to me rather than just entering data. I (foolishly) volunteered for a role and have inherited a s/s which I have made great headway with but now have an issue and a deadline.

    I have a worksheet with 8 columns each with a data filter and a "pick from drop-down menu" list and a rather annoying message if a rogue entry is made. I mention these only because it may affect an answer.

    I have created another column which as yet contains no filter or data. What I would like to do is create a rule to export some (or all) of the whole row where I enter something in this new column, to another (maybe be more than 1) worksheet. The source worksheet contains over a 1000 entries and I will need to export maybe 1:40 to a destination worksheet(s). It is also the main point of data entry for the whole workbook.

    Any help will be gratefully received but please assume my limited knowledge; I have spent a couple of hours Googling this and macro this that and the other has left me bewildered.

    Hiya Steve, You are not alone in your bewilderment! what you could do, to greater assist those with the ability to help you would be to upload a sample of your SS which demonstrates what you want to achive. ie type into a cell what you idealy want to be there and from where.

    here is a link to a great source. Its free to DL.

    Try some sort of lookup function

    Hi and thanks for responding. I best not upload the source worksheet as it contains personal info but I can say the rows contain no forumlae at all just plain text or numbers the latter cells formatted for accounting to 2 decimal places which I need to retain in the destination worksheet.
