Hi All,

I need to push data from one tab to another based on a users input.

-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.

Thanks,
JD

In Tab2, B1:

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

in B8 of Tab2:

='tab1'!A34&""

copied to C8 and down as far as you want

=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!

Do you mean in B8 of Tab2:

=IF(OR(B7="",'tab1'!A34="Resources"),"",'tab1'!A34&"")
