    datas in workbook 2 is not getting updated when datas in workbook 1 is changed

    Hi

    Not sure what's wrong with the below formula

    =IF(D7="current",SUM('[Jerry.xls]nv pl'!$B:$B=$A15)*('[Jerry.xls]nv pl'!$D:$D=$A$5)*'[Jerry.xls]nv pl'!$E:$E='[Jerry.xls]nv pl'!$E:$E)
    I have two sheets, one sheet name is Jerry, where i have the information, the above formula is in the spreadsheet called Tom. Basically this formula helps in fixing the figures department wise from the Jerry spreadsheet to Tom spreadsheet based on the condition that the row 7 should have the term "current".

    Now this formula is not working and i am getting false message.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks

    Re: formula not working

    Hi:
    You have not included the "False" section to your formula so when D7 is not equal to "current" it will show you the value "False".
    ... try this formula and you'll see what i mean..

    =IF(D7="current",SUM('[Jerry.xls]nv pl'!$B:$B=$A15)*('[Jerry.xls]nv pl'!$D:$D=$A$5)*'[Jerry.xls]nv pl'!$E:$E='[Jerry.xls]nv pl'!$E:$E,"D7 not equal to Current")

    HI,

    It's still not working. below is the formula which the old person has used in the cell O12. When i am trying it is not working. Always returning either 0.00 or false.

    =-IF(O$7="CURRENT",SUM(('F:\mine\[JERRY.xls]nv pl'!$B$2:$B$200=$A15)*('F:\mine\[JERRY.xls]nv pl'!$D$2:$D$200=$A$5)*'F:\mine\[JERRY.xls]nv pl'!$E$2:$E$200),0)

    Now i could use the formula, but when i update the workbook1 with some datas, the formula in workbook 2 is not getting updated. It shows the old data.

    I tried changing the links from manual to auto and from auto to manual.

    First make sure that the formula = true so that the "Summ" section is actually being utilized. If you're getting "False" and "0" I thinking that D7 has the wrong value... HERE , try this formula and see what it returns.. ;-)

    =IF(D7="current","D7 contains current","D7 not equal to Current")
