Excel formula

Hello,

I need a formula to populate "tab1" with all data in all rows from "tab2" if that row's cell "total" equals "abc".

Thanks in advance for any tips.

I don't think a formula will work for you
you need to use VBA and or an autofilter
here is some pseduo code that would work in VBA

public sub MoveData

  dim dblRow as double
  dim dblTarget as double

  do until thisworkbook.sheets(2).range("A" & dblRow).value = ""
    if thisworkbook.sheets(2).range("C" & dblRow).value = "abc" then
       ' Copy the data
       thisworkbook.sheets(2).rows(dblRow & ":" & dblRow).copy thisworkbook.sheets(1).range("A" & dblTarget)
    end if
    dblRow = dblRow+1
  loop

end sub

happy coding

Thanks for the answer.  To elaborate, I need to copy all row data on "Sheet3" if cell C of that row equals "$0".  I need this row data to copy to "Sheet4"

Thanks.

crash1624,
Your new request seems quite different from the first. Is it supposedly the same?
The first request isn't easily understood because one may have a hard time finding "that row's cell "total"". The second request shouldn't be difficult. Place this formula in Sheet3!A2:-
=IF(Sheet4!$C2,"",Sheet4!A2)

Open in new window

=IF(Sheet4!$C2,"",Sheet4!A2)
Copy to the right for as many columns as you wish to copy, then copy down for as many rows you have in Sheet4.
Of course, this will give you blank rows which you can filter out.
