    Automatically updating adjacent cells based on drop-down list selection even if you change

    Hi All,

    I'm having an issue. I have a workbook that has two worksheets. One worksheet is an input worksheet. A user will select a date from a drop-down list and type in the events that occurred on that date in 8 adjacent cells. The user selects a button that advances date and clears form. On sheet 2, whatever was typed into sheet one is saved via VLOOKUP formula. However, if I try to change something retroactively and select a previous date from the drop-down list, it clears everything in sheet 2 that was typed for any selected day.

    Does anyone know what could be causing that?

    A VLOOKUP formula does not save what is in the cell. It is constantly referencing data, so if you change the data it is looking up, the other data will change too.
