Excel/excel 13


hi i was making a small quotation. what i want to  do is, when i type something sheet 1 the quotation like the details name description total paid balance i want it as a record in the sheet 2. meaning in the description a customer may buy many different items. i want all the details coming on the second sheet. and when i delete the details from sheet 1 it should not get deleted from sheet 2 instead when i enter the new details in  sheet 1 it should get updated in the next line in sheet 2 keeping the previous records as it is. Can you please show me the way?

it would need some VBA to achieve this - I would SUGGEST a "clear sheet" button would be the way to go - this would record the data from your quotation on the summary sheet - it would be easier if I could see an example of the file - I can then write you a suitable macro.  My email address is aidan.heritage@virgin.net

I have provided first hand support since `95 for Microsoft Office majoring in Word and Excel - support for all versions from 2 onwards. I'm based in the UK, so please allow for time differences when asking me questions from other parts of the world!


My background is in the insurance industry and call centre areas, but have been called upon to provide many varied solutions.

I'm educated to UK A level standard, but as I left school some 30 years ago that is rather irrelevent - university of life has provided more of a background!
