#### data entry using functions??????

```I would like to type in one cell data and have data returned to another
cell.
Example:
A1  B1   C1   D1...........H1...J1  K1  L1

data typed into H1 matches data in A1; I need data in B1 C1 D1 to

I would like to copy the formulas down in J1:L1 thru 30 or so rows but
may have
only 15 rows of data in A1:D1
Data entered in the H1:31 should match one of the entries in A1:15 and
return the corresponding data in B,C,D 1:15 to the corresponding cells
in J,K,L 1:31

I cannot figure out how to do this, the IF function won't do this in
any format I can discern.

Hope I have made myself clear.
Mark

```I think this is what you mean. You have a table of data in A1:D15. You
enter data in H1 and if it matches eg A5, then J1=B5, K1=C5 and L1=D5. If
that's correct, then you need to use VLOOKUP.

In J1 type
=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(\$H1,\$A\$1:\$D\$15,2,FALSE)),"",(VLOOKUP(\$H1,\$A\$1:\$D\$15,2,FALSE)))
In K1 type the same except change each instance of 2 to 3 and repeat in L1
except with 4.

You can get away with =VLOOKUP(\$H1,\$A\$1:\$D\$15,2,FALSE) but if a cell in
column H is either empty or doesn't match a cell in column A, then you will
get #N/A displayed in columns J to L.

Copy them down the columns.

Column A needs to be in ascending alphanumeric order.

```Thanks, I will give it a try, I looked at Vlookup yesterday but did not
discern how to format it.

Difficulty Aligning Series Data With Proper Dates
I ‘m building a column graph using Excel 2007 and I’m having difficulty aligning a series of data with the proper dates. I have 2 series of data – Series 1: Includes a value for each quarter in 2009 (e.g., Mar-09, Jun-09, etc). Series 2: Includes a value for each quarter in 2010 (e.g., Mar-10, Jun-10, etc). After creating each series, I select the appropriate dates (Series 1 – 2009 dates / Series 2 – 2010 dates). The first issue that I’m having is that when I select the second set of dates (for Series 2), it overrides the first – so the x-axis initially shows 2009 dates, but then ...

export public folder data?
Am in the process of performing an Alternate server recovery of an Exchange 2003 Information Store. The reason being that on the current server all the email has dissappeared from the public folder mail folders...its a very strange situation indeed. Hoping that by restoring an earlier backup to a different machine we can see if the emails will return. If they do, is there a way I could export the contents of these folders back into the current info store? I gather that Exmerge will only work on Mailboxes and not Public Folders...

Selecting specific data #2
Hi everyone I have another little problem. I have got a list of 20 items on sheet1, Cells A1 - A20 (numbered 1 - 20) and Cells B1 - B20 are items relating to that number, ie, number 1 = Concrete, number 2 = walls, and so on.
