I think I'm doing this bass-ackwards! I have one master sheet with all of the cases logged on a daily basis. The users will see the two worksheets in the same workbook but I need the data from the master to go to different ws according to the first cell.

If a3 says New Product, I need it to go to the New Product worksheet but otherwise, it should go to the Periodic Event ws. I was trying to do a CountIf but I really did the data in the cell to show.

I wish there was a 'displayIF' option! Can someone help please?

Management just added a THIRD part ot this, yikes! They want three review types, New, Periodic, and Event to all go to separate worksheets. Let me try to explain it again and hopefully it will be more clear.

I have a workbook used by two people who log in cases and by four who will pick up the cases to work. The master sheet holds every single case that comes in with the loggers comments.

The two three sheets are separated by type of review, New Product, Event, or Periodic and the people working the cases add their own comments and completetion dates.

The first four columns of the master sheet 'Log' are linked to the other two sheets so they automatically update BUT I have the filters on so only the 'New' or 'Event' shows up. Does that make sense? All three sheets have the exact same data but only the appropriate one for the sheet shows up.

I thought I could use an IF statement to check the cell for one of the three reviews and then send it to the corresponding worksheet but haven't been able to figure it out yet. I've also run through vlookup, hlookup, countif, countifs, and a couple of others out of sheer desperation and would prefer not to have to resort to VBA because I am lousy at it and barely understand it when someone else writes it for me.

Any ideas? I am open to suggestion but Access is NOT an option at this point.

✔ Best Answer
It is possible to do a "DisplayIf" it would look like this:

Put this formula in A1 on Sheet 1

=IF(Sheet2!A1="New Product",Sheet2!A1,"")

and you would do that for every cell on Sheet2 you wanted to view on Sheet1.

What this formula is doing is saying make Sheet1!A1 = Sheet2!A1 if Sheet2!A1 = 'New Product'


If you did something like this, you would have to be careful about moving data around on Sheet2, it is possible to mess up your formulas on Sheet 1.

Law of Logical Argument: Anything is possible if you don't know what you're talking about.
