Excel formula question

I have an amortization table in the first tab. I need to pull information from that schedule into the second tab for a given set of dates. I would like to put a start date and end date field in the second tab, and the information automatically populates.

The start date input field in the second tab is B16, and the end date is B17.
The amortization schedule information needs to be populated from A23 to H23 and down until the end date is reached.

The cells from the first tab that need brought over are A16 to H16. Some of those cells have formulas in them, and they need to be brought to the second tab without causing errors.
Can anybody help give me a formula to work for this please?
Thanks,

In which column is the date? Assuming it's A and that original sheet is called data try this formula in A23 of 2nd sheet, copied across and down as far as required

=IF(AND(Data!$A16>=$B$16,Data!$A16<=$B$17),Data!A16,"")

that didn't quite work...it was close, but when I attempted to drag it down, the formula only worked on 2 lines.  I am attaching the file so you can see what I am trying to do.  Thanks.  All of the information from "Day" to "Total Interest" needs to be populated in the Report Tab.

You have the start date as 15/09/2011 and end date as 16/09/2011 so you only got 2 lines because there are only 2 rows that are in that date range - if you change the date range you should see the other rows.......

Note you'll have to format the columns appropriately for date etc.

Yes, that column can be included too - just copy the existing formulas in column B into that column too.......

everything you have given has worked, and i greatly appreciate it.  But i have another thing I would like to do with this.  I will only be pulling approx 30 days each time i do this report, and I would like the cells to only populate from cells 23-60 so that way i can make a simple print out.  The way it populates now, i can't do that.  for example if i want info for the year 2020 the data populates in cell A 30,000.  Can this be done? Thanks

Ok no problem - see the attached

I added a "match" formula in B18, it makes the other formulas simpler - so that one is

=MATCH(B16,Data!B:B,0)

That finds the row with the date from B16, you can hide that if you want (or move it)

Now the formula in A23 is

=IF(ROWS(A$23:A23)>$B$17-$B$16+1,"",INDEX(Data!A:A,$B$18+ROWS(A$23:A23)-1))

copied down to H60
