I currently have the following formula (below) which works great but I now need to tweak it to work multi sheet.

=IF(P5="_IM1_/img/samples/flag_green.gif_IM2_Deal Status_IM3_",5,IF(P5="_IM1_/img/samples/flag_yellow.gif_IM2_Deal Status_IM3_",3,IF(P5="_IM1_/img/samples/flag_red.gif_IM2_Deal Status_IM3_",1,1)))

My workbook now has the following tabs

DHC Detal
Scores

before in column AB I had the formula above but now rather than look at the existing sheet line it needs to look at TAB Scores and when the value in DHC Detail column A has a match somewhere in Scores Column A then the formula would look at the value in Scores column E

Change your reference accordingly. E.g. A of Scores is referred by  Scores!A. Because of the space in the other sheet name you will need to enclose the name in single quotes like in 'DHC Detail'!A.

Yea I get that but only when DHC Detail Column A has a match on Scores column A

So basically

If Scores A = DHC Detail A then

using the e* from Scores
=IF(E5="_IM1_/img/samples/flag_green.gif_IM2_Deal Status_IM3_",5,IF(E5="_IM1_/img/samples/flag_yellow.gif_IM2_Deal Status_IM3_",3,IF(E5="_IM1_/img/samples/flag_red.gif_IM2_Deal Status_IM3_",1,1)))  
 
and if no match column should be left blank

Not getting you exactly. Are we on one of this two sheets with the formula?
I reckon "Scores A" means "Scores A on the same row as the formula"?
