    Hi, i would like to know how to Update some cells using data from another sheet on the same excel file.

    I have made an example xls and attached it.

    Basically each User 1(row) will have columns with the number of the days in a month.
    When u assign the value "OK" i a cell that is in the column [example, day 21] then the column named User 1(on the other sheet)
    will get the value "21" in its corresponding cell.

    I think you are TEST.xlsxgoing to need to see the file attached

    In A2, enter formula:


    confirmed with CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER not just ENTER, then copy down and to next column. Format the results as General or Number.

    If you really want to show as date in January, then try:


    confirmed with CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER not just ENTER, then copy down and to next column. Format the results as Date. (Note the year and month are hard-coded into the formula here).

    Hello again,

    I just wanted to ask i there is a change i can make to the 1rst formula so i would read every second line starting from the first.
    On the INPUT SHEET

    User 1 => Check the OK's
    User 1 => No action
    User 2 => Check the OK's
    User 2 => No action
    User 3 => Check the OK's
    User 3 => No action
    ....and so on.

    and then on the REPORT SHEET as it already is.

    really sorry to push the envelope, but how can i change the output to rows instead of columns on the REPORT SHEET, like thisTEST_rows.xlsx
