    If cell contains specific text automatically copy row to different sheet

    Hi,

    I'm really hoping for some help. Usually I don't have to use excel but at the moment I'm being given a lot of databases and spreadsheets to set up, which I have always managed to figure out. This problem seems to be way too complicated for my minimum knowledge.

    I have a workbook with various different sheets, which all have the same basic set up. Column E in every sheet is a drop down box with the options Outstanding, In Progress and Completed. What I need is for any row that has Outstanding or In Progress selected to be automatically copied onto my Summary sheet (preferably with an extra column to say which sheet the row is from. Though if this can't be done it's fine.)
    Also I would like for when an action is 'Completed' it is removed from the summary sheet.

    Am I asking for too much? Can this be done? Thank you in advance for any help or advise you give.

    Re: If cell contains specific text automatically copy row to different sheet

    Hi John,

    Thanks for the help, but this code is deleting the rows from the original sheet. Am I able to keep them on the original sheet and copy them onto my summary?

    Thanks

    Hi donnzi

    I completely misread your requirements...sorry about that...

    Is Summary Sheet currently populated? Is there a Field on each sheet that's Unique? Can you upload a Sample Workbook?

    At the moment I've not got any data in, so I'm happy to change things to make it easier to do what I need it to do.

    Please see the attached for what I have so far.

    Hi donnzi

    You are requesting
    when an action is 'Completed' it is removed from the summary sheet
    What makes this Action Unique...which of your Header(s) makes an Action Unique such that it can be found in the Summary Sheet?

    Re: If cell contains specific text automatically copy row to different sheet

    Hi,

    What I need most is for any row on the 'site' sheets that has 'Outstanding' or 'In Progress' selected in column E to be copied on the 'summary' sheet automatically.

    Ideally, once these actions are marked 'Completed', they are automatically deleted from the summary sheet but remain on their original sheet.

    Am I making any sense?Sorry if I'm being difficult

    Hi donnzi

    Please put some Data in your Worksheets. The Data should be representative of your Actual Data.

    If you go to the worksheet 'Site1' that has the example data in. That is what I need to be copied to the 'Summary' sheet.
