Excel - IF Function Problem - Expert Solution

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

I have a mastersheet with all of my data on it, in the form of a table, which needs to have more data added in the future. This mastersheet also will have the filters applied meaning the data will be moving from its origin. I am creating multiple other sheets within the workbook that will display specific rows from the mastersheet and automatically update when the mastersheet is altered. I have tried many ways to make this happen but it always seems to fail once I apply a filter and the data is not in its original cell. It appears as if I can only link the sheets to a specific cell on the mastersheet rather than to the relevant moving row.

Excelchat Expert 12/07/2018 - 02:04
b2=ArrayFormula(IFERROR(INDEX(Sheet1!B$2:B$20,SMALL(IF(Sheet1!$H$2:$H$20="Welding",ROW(Sheet1!$B$2:$B$20)-ROW($B$2)+1),ROW(1:1))),""))

okay brilliant, so if I move the order within the mnastersheet the data will remain the same on the other ones?
Excelchat Expert 12/07/2018 - 02:07
you can change the order in master sheet as long as it is Washer it will appear in the Washer sheet ..the only difference is the position
