Hi! Disclaimer: not an excel genius…

I’m trying to use the lookup function to grab data from a worksheet within the same workbook. I want the column to reference the cost code in one worksheet, find the cost code in the other and display the billed to date associated with it. The problem is that it repeats an amount randomly. There will be multiples then a blank cell in one that I know has a cost associated with it.

Hello again fishies...

Column D in tab 1 and tab 2 is a drop down list which has 6 items.

Trying to make an =if formula (but open to other ideas) where a "point" is given for every criteria met.
as an example
if the account spent +1000 in Q2 it'd gain one "point"
then if it spent +1000 in Q3 it'd be another "point"
If it met both of those criteria, the cell would = 2. If it only met one, then it'd = 1

Ideally I'd like to have 7-8 criteria points

Anyone have any ideas? Thanks !

Hello All,
Excel help please. I’m trying to combine 3 tabs into 1. So on tabs a,b,c I have wire instructions that go to different places, but they all have the same field names/format. However the number of rows for each tab will vary from day to day. I need to make a fourth tab that shows all the rows from a,b,c consecutively. Because the number of rows change, I can’t find the best way to collate all the rows into one table. I can use a macro or lookups or a source formula. Please advise!
