Hi All,

-User inputs into b10 & a15 on tab1 and combine the fields then populate in B1 tab2.

- I also need to, push fields "task" & to "performed by" on tab1 to "task" and "champion" tab2.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

In Tab2, B1:

='tab1'!B10&'tab1'!A15

in B8 of Tab2:

='tab1'!A34&""

copied to C8 and down as far as you want

Try this formula, in A8:

=IF(B8="","",COUNTA(B$8:B8))

I may need to expand the task section on tab1. Is there a way on tab 2 to do a check for this expansion and not include anything if it hits the header "resources" in column a on tab1.

Many thanks!
