    Lookup in a different sheet


    I am building quicker way to invoice my clients and I was hoping to do something like this.

    I want to be able to enter an account number for the client that I am billing and have all of their information from a different sheet auto fill in different cells.

    for example:
    |____________A________________ |___________B_________________________|
    1| ______Account Number__________ | 02354 (I would enter this manually)______|
    2|______________________________ |_____________________________________|
    3|_______Address_________________| 123 Maple Street (auto filled from sheet 2) |
    4|_______Amount Due:_____________| $500 (auto filled from sheet 2)___________|
    5|_______Due By:_________________| 01/01/2012 ___________________________|

    I hope this is clear. Let me know if you have any suggestions.

    Have a look at VLOOKUP help in Excel's help files...

    You just need to have a table listing the account numbers with all relevant info in the adjacent rows, then use VLOOKUP to extract based on the account number.


    =VLOOKUP(A1,'Data Sheet'!$A:$F,2,0) extracts from column B of sheet called Data Sheet, where a match is found in column A corresponding to Acct No in A1 of Invoice sheet.
    Where there is a will there are many ways.

    Name your sheet 2 table of data comprising the four columns (and maybe others) for account number,address, due amount and due by, say "Data" and then just use a standard VLOOKUP() function. e.g. for the address
