This is quite difficult for me to explain clearly, so please refer the attached example for clarification.
I have an excel spreadsheet which contains tabs - two forms and two with lookup data.
FORM1 contains information from both the DATA1 and DATA2 tabs. On this form there is a drop-down list of names sourced from the tab DATA1. Firstly, I would like this to be a unique list of names derived from both DATA1 and DATA2 tabs - only one instance of each person.
FORM2 contains data from the DATA2 tab. The name in cell A1 on this form needs to be whatever is currently being displayed in the drop-down list on FORM1. I have done this through using an OFFSET formula.
My problem is that the DATA1 and DATA2 tabs contain records that may not be the same and so the values offset into the fields on FORM1 and FORM2 may not relate to the person selected/displayed in the drop-down list on FORM1.
Where there is a record for a person in DATA1 but not in DATA2, I would like the relevant fields in both FORM1 and FORM2 to remain blank and vice versa.
Any help in how to make this work would be greatly appreciated.
