I would like to know how to create a formula to assist me with the following:
1) Firstly I manually enter data into columns ‘A’, ‘B’, and ‘C’
2) I then manually type into column ‘D’ a written value, (eg, ‘Income’, or ‘Petrol’)
3) The value shown in either column ‘B’ or ‘C’, (depending on which is populated), is then automatically referenced in the appropriate column on the right. In other words, if I type the word ‘Income’ into ‘D3’, I will want F3’ to automatically display the contents of ‘B3’.
In practise I will have hundreds of rows, and about 20 different columns, so having the ability to type the name of the column in will save a lot of time, vs manually copying the numbers across.
Whilst I would probably understand the formula needed to achieve this, creating it from scratch is beyond my current capability…
