Default Dynamic Column VlookUps Based on Week Number

I have a YTD spread sheet that I'm building using a VlookUp table. The
LookUp table is built from a cell referenced worksheet from an AS/400 static
spreadsheet. Each week this I download the AS/400 information then copy and
special paste sheet to the cell referenced worksheet. This information is
feeds up to the YTD sheet that provides trend data for the year. By entering
the next Week number how do I build a dynamic VlookUp column that by entering
a the week number the data will dynamically populate the next column builidng
to the prior weeks YTD spreadsheet.

Hi
not really sure about your data layout. Could you provide some example
rows of your data and your expected result?

You could use IF with your VLookup formulas, to return an empty string
if the week's data hasn't been uploaded yet. That way, you could enter
all the formulas for the year on the YTD sheet, and they'll populate as
data is uploaded.

There's an example he

Frank, thanks for the reply. I have multiple data sheets that moves my
informtion up to my ended results.

First is my AS/400 Spyview report. This information is static with reports
results set in specific cells. To extract the 20 numbers needed, I have a
second worksheet that references the spyview report. It's nothing more then
B13=Datafile!AY36, B14=Datafile!AV36, etc.

This Worksheet has two rows, Text and Numbers. It provides the same formate
as the weekly trend on another worksheet. This table is defined with a name
for the lookup.

A thrid work sheet is where I'm having the trouble. I can do a lookup to
populate the information in to the next week, however what I'd like to do is
by indicating the week number, the data would populate the correct week
column. I know this isn't a lot of data, however I have 120 branches in
individual spread sheets

I hope this my help.
