Excel/Excel 2007 work on 2 sheets
QUESTION: I have one worksheet#1 with spare parts, numbers in col.1, end-user prices in col.G and purchase price in col.H.
On worksheet #2 I calculate the invoice to the customer: col.B is the part no, col.D is the end-user price and col.F is the purchase price.
I would like to do:
Worksheet #2 - i put the part number and want col.D (enduserprice) and co.F (purchase price) to appear automatically.
Could you please help?
ANSWER: Assume the name of worksheet#1 is Sheet1
Say you enter a part number in B2, then
for row 2 in worksheet#2.
then select D2 and drag fill down as far as you need to go. Same for F2

QUESTION: Wow, you are fast!!!
At mom no success, maybe because the spare part #s on Sheet 1 col.A are not in "number format" but text and also locked?
You are correct that "123" will not match to 123.
So if the part number on the Invoice sheet is stored as a number and the values in column A of Sheet1 are stored as text (my understanding of what you say), then you could try this
this will convert the number (stored as a number) in B2 to be a text string representing that number and then if the values in column A of sheet1 are matching text strings, the formulas should work.

QUESTION: Hmmm: still not. A changed the names of the sheets to "Sheet1...(I am workingg excel in German, no, i formatted the part number col.A on Sheet1 in text-not locked and on Sheet2 col.B same format. Here are screen shots of the two sheets.
Thank you for your patience (I have been trying to do this since years and spent hours and hours, but then - i am just no expert :-)
N632 is a text string. It will never stored as a number. So the vlookup should work.
A picture really doesn't tell me much beyond that. If you want me to take a look at it, then send the sample workbook to firstname.lastname@example.org That is about all I can offer at this point.
