My apologies, I didn't quite noticed the part where you said "If a value is entered in cellA5 , that value moves to cell B5"
Excelchat Expert 14/07/2018 - 01:42
And clears A5.
Excelchat Expert 14/07/2018 - 01:42
It is not possible to do such things with excel formula.
User 14/07/2018 - 01:43
Pls
User 14/07/2018 - 01:43
Are you clear with my points.
Excelchat Expert 14/07/2018 - 01:43
Yeah, I'm clear.
Excelchat Expert 14/07/2018 - 01:44
Data inputted in cell A5 should be cleared and moved to B5, and the previous value of B5 should be moved to C5.
Excelchat Expert 14/07/2018 - 01:44
Isn't it the requirement?
User 14/07/2018 - 01:45
Yes
Excelchat Expert 14/07/2018 - 01:46
Unfortunately it is not possible to do with formula.
User 14/07/2018 - 01:47
Value in A5 moves to B5 and B5 value moves to C5. No need t o clear A5 cell
Excelchat Expert 14/07/2018 - 01:47
Let's say I input a value in A5, please look at the previous window.
Excelchat Expert 14/07/2018 - 01:48
Now with formula, it is possible to show what is in A5 also in B5, and what is in B5 also in C5.
Excelchat Expert 14/07/2018 - 01:49
Then the values of all three cells would be the same.
Excelchat Expert 14/07/2018 - 01:49
If that is what you need.
Excelchat Expert 14/07/2018 - 01:51
The respective formulas for B5 should be =A5 and formula for C5 should be =B5
User 14/07/2018 - 01:52
So you failed right
User 14/07/2018 - 01:53
Ok
User 14/07/2018 - 01:53
Bye
