How to return a result from another tab in Excel

Posted on 2014-07-15
Last Modified: 2014-07-15
I have an Excel spreadsheet with two tabs. Sheet 1 has part information for this month such as part number, description, price, etc. Sheet 2 has a complete list of part numbers in column A and commission percentages in column B.

When I enter a part number in sheet 1 I want it to automatically fill in the percentage based on the source info in sheet two. So I will provide part numbers in sheet one each month and the commission percentage will be filled in automatically based on the info in sheet 2.

    You can do it with VLOOKUP.



    if there is a possibility of no match and you want to return a blank (or other comment), then use IFERROR()

    IN sheet2, Excel cell type on A1 cell , for example,
    =sheet1!A1 that will call A1 cell value from sheet1 and put it
    on sheet2 cell A1

    and do anything you want  , for example, =sheet1!A1*100/5, and click % on meun bar

    Hope understand your question completely.If not, please point it out
