Excel/Excel 2013


I am making a new Excel 2013 workbook with six worksheets.  
I need information from one sheet (certain cells) to fill automatically into the other sheets (not necessarily in the same cells.  
How do I do this?  
Also if figured out how to do this if cell information is numerical... I need it for cells with alphabetical information.

If they're not in the same cells, you'll have to just copy/paste. There's no automatic way to do it unless you want to use formulas in the "other" sheets to pick up the info from the main sheet, but you'd have to know from where it comes. You said you were able to do it if it were numeric but not alphabetic... whatever you did should work for both numeric & alphabetic.
I'm assuming you didn't use VBA.
If it WERE in the same cells, you could group the sheets (right-click the tab, select group), then whatever you do in the active sheet would be replicated in all the sheets in the group,.
