# Excel - IF Function Problem - Expert Solution

Question description:
This user has given permission to use the problem statement for this blog.

I have 5 sheets in one workbook. Sheet 1 finds the MIN value in certain cells within the other 4 sheets. I need a formula in sheet 1 that does the following: If MIN value was found on sheet 3, cell A5, then I need to paste data from 2 other cells (not adjacent) on sheet 3 to sheet 1. If MIN value was found on sheet 4, then the data from 2 other cells on sheet 4 needs to go to 2 cells on sheet 1. So whatever sheet the MIN value is found on, it has 2 cells with corresponding data that need to be pulled to 2 cells on sheet one based on the result of the MIN formula. Thanks!

Excelchat Expert 24/02/2018 - 11:34
its ok

So on the "Master Sheet"
User 24/02/2018 - 11:35
Cell E6
User 24/02/2018 - 11:36
Needs to pull the text from the cell on the "Bussa" sheet that says "Matt Bussa #34"
User 24/02/2018 - 11:37
because the MIN value from my equation on MasterSheet! D6 found the MIN value to be on the "Bussa" Sheet
Excelchat Expert 24/02/2018 - 11:38
How do you know that it has to be from Bussa sheet?
User 24/02/2018 - 11:38
Because the MIN formula found that the min value was on the Bussa sheet
User 24/02/2018 - 11:39
in cell D6 on mastersheet
Excelchat Expert 24/02/2018 - 11:39
The other sheets have blank values now, right?
User 24/02/2018 - 11:40
correct, just building the sheet now
User 24/02/2018 - 11:40
The MIN value can come from any of the other 4 sheets. So whichever sheet its from, I need other data from that respective sheet to be put on the mastersheet
User 24/02/2018 - 11:42
For example, I put in "xx" for setup on master sheet and Bussa sheet
User 24/02/2018 - 11:42
Bussa sheet shows i used setup "xx". Since MIN value was found on the Bussa sheet, then mastersheet should show "xx" under "setup" as well
Excelchat Expert 24/02/2018 - 11:42
which cells you are counting to find the minimum values?
User 24/02/2018 - 11:44
So theres a MIN value for the best 5 lap average, 10 lap, 15, etc. So the 5 lap average finds the MIN value of the 5 lap average for all drivers (4 sheets)
User 24/02/2018 - 11:44
sorta hard to explain
User 24/02/2018 - 11:45
I could manually enter it, so if its not possible, no worries
Excelchat Expert 24/02/2018 - 11:46

User 24/02/2018 - 11:50
