i'm wondering how to format a cell to pull from a list of orders.. for example..

User
14/08/2018 - 06:09

apples 2 cases, bananas 3 cases, banana green 2 cases, oranges 1 case, juice orange 1 case

User
14/08/2018 - 06:09

in vertical format

User
14/08/2018 - 06:09

Excelchat Expert
14/08/2018 - 06:10

yes, it would help

User
14/08/2018 - 06:10

so

User
14/08/2018 - 06:10

we have a "recap sheet" that we utilze to order

User
14/08/2018 - 06:10

i'll show in preview

Excelchat Expert
14/08/2018 - 06:11

sure

User
14/08/2018 - 06:12

so what i'm looking for is for the cell in sheet "recap" column B to pull from sheet "order sheet"s quantity

User
14/08/2018 - 06:12

so, for example

User
14/08/2018 - 06:12

...

User
14/08/2018 - 06:12

the quantities would automatically load the clients bananas from the first sheet

User
14/08/2018 - 06:13

makes sense?

User
14/08/2018 - 06:14

made a correction in sheet 1

User
14/08/2018 - 06:14

order sheet.. added ripe to bananas

User
14/08/2018 - 06:14

Excelchat Expert
14/08/2018 - 06:21

great

User
14/08/2018 - 06:21

so essentially you have the formula pulling directly from the cell

User
14/08/2018 - 06:21

so,

User
14/08/2018 - 06:22

if i need to condition the cell to read from sheet 1 with specifics now..

User
14/08/2018 - 06:22

for example

User
14/08/2018 - 06:22

apricot loose

User
14/08/2018 - 06:22

apricot organic

User
14/08/2018 - 06:22

apricot bunch

User
14/08/2018 - 06:22

how would i differentiate

User
14/08/2018 - 06:23

as in, where would i make that command sheet

User
14/08/2018 - 06:23

?.. make sense?

Excelchat Expert
14/08/2018 - 06:23

I did not follow

User
14/08/2018 - 06:24

okay.. sorry, i thought i was running out of time..

User
14/08/2018 - 06:24

okay.. essentially...

User
14/08/2018 - 06:24

i'll copy and past, one moment

Excelchat Expert
14/08/2018 - 06:24

cool

User
14/08/2018 - 06:26

okay

User
14/08/2018 - 06:27

soo, that's an example of my P.O

User
14/08/2018 - 06:27

my recap sheet, i'll have pre made myself

User
14/08/2018 - 06:27

but would read more like this.. (pasting example now)

User
14/08/2018 - 06:29

so

Excelchat Expert
14/08/2018 - 06:29

what is the question?

User
14/08/2018 - 06:29

i have to pull from sheet 3 the potatoes

User
14/08/2018 - 06:30

but the text is differnt on sheet 3 than it is on sheet 4

User
14/08/2018 - 06:30

would that be an issue?

Excelchat Expert
14/08/2018 - 06:31

would it be always the first word?

User
14/08/2018 - 06:31

likely.. then followed by a more specific description

User
14/08/2018 - 06:32

for example.. looking at the roots..there's 5 different types of roots

User
14/08/2018 - 06:32

as well as pounds/ counts..

Excelchat Expert
14/08/2018 - 06:32

if it's the first word then I will extract in column A

User
14/08/2018 - 06:33

understood.. now what about the second text.. the 40ct 50ct etc

User
14/08/2018 - 06:33

would that have to be differentiated in the conditional rules?

Excelchat Expert
14/08/2018 - 06:34

what do you mean?

User
14/08/2018 - 06:34

okay.. one moment.. sorry

User
14/08/2018 - 06:35

okay.. when you listed the conditions on order sheet

User
14/08/2018 - 06:35

i get it

User
14/08/2018 - 06:36

.. i'll just have to script a column before the descriptions in which the formula can understand

User
14/08/2018 - 06:36

okay.

User
14/08/2018 - 06:37

soo, i'll be able to copy your cells you created and work on it myself?

Excelchat Expert
14/08/2018 - 06:37

yes

User
14/08/2018 - 06:39
