How to search and add a value from sheet1 to sheet2


Let's say you have one sheet with a list of products.
Column1 = product name
Column2 = product number

I would like to have a cell on Sheet2, where I can start typing something, 
and it would let me see a list based on what I typed so far.
E.g when I type "Volks" it should show a list of all Volkswagen Cars.

If I then choose the value, it should use this value and add the product 
number in the cell next to it.

What function should I use, or how can I do this?

You could use Data Validation drop-down list for the selecting the product
name and VLOOKUP for adding the product number.

DV info at Debra Dalgleish's site.

Also VLOOKUP info.

As far as the "autocomplete" goes, a regular DV drop-down will not function
this way.

To get autocomplete use a combination of DV and a ComboBox.

Data Validation Combobox-- Double-click on a cell that contains a data
validation list, and a combobox appears -- font size can be set, more than 8
rows displayed, and autocomplete can be enabled. Macros must be enabled.

Search last 4 digits in an (account number)
I store bank accunt and credit card numbers in various Contact Notes. For example, a credit card # as xxxxxxxxxxxx1234.

Searching for Newsgroups
I subscribe to a Usenet service for accessing various news groups. After I download all the newsgroups from that server I can not find a way to search for the newsgroups I have interest in.

Looking Up the First Nonzero Value in a Column
Hello everyone, I am looking for a function that can return the first nonzero value in a column. I have a table that has months across the top and down the leftmost column. The data in the table are balances as of each month, essentially. It looks like this: J F M A M J 1 F 2 1 M 3 2 1 A 4 3 2 1 M 5 4 3 2 1 Is there a way to say, "Look in the column labeled "F" and return the first nonzero number"? Then the cell below it will need to be the number directly below that first number, and so on. I'd appreciate any help. Thanks! Sincerely, T...

How do you add straight lines to a candlestick chart?
I created a candlestick chart for foreign exchange rates, but I want to add several horizontal lines indicating the high for the range (using formula MAX), the low for the range (using formula MIN) and an additional trade rate line (manual input) without having to manually draw the three lines each time. So for example, I would create a candlestick chart for Currency A within the past two weeks. Let's say the 2-week range is between 115 and 130, and the trade rate is 120. I want to automatically add horizontal lines at 130 and 115 (indicates the range) and a line at 120. This ...

What does outlook search when you search Contacts ?
When you do a search in oulook for contacts, what is the criteria that outlook searches? Or I guess how does outlook search? Why is it not consistant? The reason I am asking is that we have our customers contacts in public folders. In our customers we have 6 contacts for XYZ Foods. If you search in outlook for just "XYZ" it only comes back with 4 of the six. If you do a search for "XYZ Foods" it returns with all 6. And if you just entered "Foods" no contacts were found.

Filter out rows based on the value of a cell
Using Windows XP and Excel 2007 Would like to create a search box of sorts, where when I type a word into a specific cell, let's say B2, then the rows displayed filter out based on what I typed, so that only rows where column D equaled "Smith" for example, would show. It would also be helpful if I could select a value from a dropdown next to it determining which column would be checked for the filtering. For example, I type "Smith" in cell B2, and then select "Last Name" from the drop down so that the rows displayed are filtered by showing only rows where the...
