Hi there,

I am creating a staff roster for a work place and I have 2 sheets - one sheet is the actual roster, while the second sheet is the 'weekly forecast' which calculates wages spent, approximate takings etc. On sheet 1 I have cell A5 as a text cell with the name "Jeff" in it, in sheet 2 I want to have cell A5 automatically show up as "Jeff" - so if I change the employee "Jeff" in sheet 1, it will automatically change in sheet 2.

I have tried just doing =Sheet1.A5 and formatting the cell to 'text' but it doesn't work - arrrgh.

I am stuck on this and it seems so simple.....

Any help? I would greatly, greatly appreciate it!!

=Sheet1.A5 works fine for me. I didn't format either cell as text.

Don't put your email address in a post - spammers troll for them.

all good ... thanks for the heads up on the email address thing

someone on another forum told me to remove all formatting and it should work, and it does!
