Excel 2010, Win 7 Pro

I have a Workbook with 2 Worksheets, 1 of them we use to input data and perform calculations the second we want to create automatically from the first.

Basically the concept is the following

if a Cell, for example B1, of WorkSheet1 has a "Yes" copy that row to the next available row in worksheet 2
Do that in every row  that has a Yes until the end of the Worksheet
If the Yes is changed to No delete it from the second worksheet
If it is changed from No to Yes add it to the second worksheet
Do it automatically if a row is added or deleted on Worksheet 1

Is it possible to do that without writing VBA code?  If so how do I do it?

Thanks

Yes - but unfortunately, you'd have to do it manually.  Having some helper columns with formulas and potentially using data filters would help that manual process.

The attached might do what you want. It requires the following
1.  On the first sheet : A column that identifies the Nth Yes by adding a number onto the word yes. I guess this would not be a problem.
2. On the second sheet : Lookup formulae that extend downwards further than the number of Yes's you have on the first sheet.

You can change Yes's to No's and vice versa and add or delete rows on the first sheet and still get the "Yes" data on the second sheet.

Hopefully, you can see what it's doing and decide if it works for you. If it's not clear, let me know and I will explain further.

Kind regards

Adding a number is a problem, the customer is going to see it eventually and it could confuse them

Is there a particular reason you don't want to use VBA?

Not really, it would be less work if Excel provided the functionality without writing the code.
