How do I update my Excel list with new rows automatically ?

Hi Experts,

I have a workbook which holds Product information and YTD values of products sold.

The 'Master' sheet holds the complete Product list at the start of the year and is made up of the following columns: Product ID, Product Description, YTD Target amount, YTD Actual amount.

This sheet is updated each month with the latest YTD figures for those products which have sold this year. So, for example, with 1000 products, only 600 of those products may have actually been sold to date.

The YTD updates are entered on a sheet called 'YTD April' (for example), and the Master figures are updated automatically using VLOOKUP.

This works fine except when a new product has been introduced and entered on the YTD April sheet. Is it possible to update the Master sheet with new product rows automatically, rather than manually ?
