#### If statement linking data from one sheet to another

```I have a spreadsheet with many tabs. I am trying to develop a summery sheet
that will ‘auto fill’ certain rows of data and still remain dynamic.

What I am doing:  in Column I,  I have a number; I want this to be the row
number for finding the data in the other worksheet.  I have If Statements in
Columns A thru E for filling the data if Column I has a number in it.  If
Column I is empty then nothing appears.  Formula is:

=IF(I53 <> "","=+Agency Reallocation data!D&I53","")

But, when I use this formula I get =+Agency Reallocation data!D&I53
Can someone help me make the formula work so that when Column has a positive
integer in it the formula will get the correct data.  Thanks for your time!

```

```I dont know if this is a fix because I am not sure what you are trying to
achieve but
your quotes are around too much of the data if you are intending to return
the value form the 'agency' sheet.

The only quoted element should be the name of the sheet:-
=IF(I53 <> "",'Agency Reallocation data'!D&I53,"")

However, The D&I53 also looks dodgy. I *think* what you are trying to
achieve is:-

=IF(A1 <> "",INDEX('Agency Reallocation data'!D:D,A1,1),"")

this looks up (index function) the content of an array ('Agency Reallocation
data'!D:D), starting at row (a1) and colum 1 (ie the first column in the
array)

If Statement inside If statement....
Hello all, I'd like to start by thanking all on this forum for the great advice and assistance you provide! Saved me more times than I can count! OK....

Data validation through code
Hi Experts, You know that DATA VALIDATION works only in case of entering values in cells by typing (prvents entering wrong values). It does not work in case of pasting. It also does not work in case of cells having formula. I read in some books that we can use worksheet_Change event or worksheet_Calculate to validate data through code. But code can validate data only after cell is changed. It means we can not prevent wrong entries, we also can not restore original values. Please tell me, is my conception right? or is there any way to handle this problem. Regards, Diva You are right that Exce...

3 different data ranges to chart on one graph

Can I create a statement from a spreadsheet
I have created a spreadsheet of 90 people going on a trip for our school showing the amount of the trip and each payment and six or seven payments with check numbers. I also have their current balance. Would I be able to print a statement of their account? The short answer is "yes". However, the best method of doing this, depending on how your data is arranged, is probably to use the XL sheet as a data source for a data merge in Word.

How can I place a link on a webpage to point to my Tasks folder in outlook? ...

Lets say I have a table on another sheet, and I want to lookup a name there, then report the value sitting next to it. The sheets names are such that they have something like "My Sheet 1" then "My Sheet 2" then "My Sheet 3" etc. Forgetting the complication of VLOOKUP, since I know how to do that, how would I refer to the sheets, but get it to change from cell to cell? For example, in cell C2 I have ='My Sheet 1'!E1044. How would I get it so that I could just drag it to cell C3 and it would say ='My Sheet 2'!E1044? Is there any way to do this?...

IF OR Statements
Anybody know how to write a formula for a statement involving "if" and "or" statements such as: if (cell x=? and (cell y=? or cell z=?)) then cell Q=? or blank In general terms: =IF(AND(X=?,OR(Y=?,Z=?)),?,"") This formula would have to be in cell Q An example with actual cells: =IF(AND(A1=10,OR(A2=15,A3=20)),100,"") This formula must be in the cell to which the result should be returned. A formula can't "reach out" and put a value in another cell; it just returns a value to the cell that has the formula. Please note th...
