How Can I Transfer Data From an Excel Sheet to Another Sheet in a Specified Cell?

By Carter McBride

If you want to transfer the cell contents of one cell to the another cell in a separate work sheet, then you can use a cell reference. Excel's work sheets are sheets in an entire workbook, so all of your sheets are in the same file. When you update the one cell, then your cell reference in the other sheet automatically updates with the new cell references. This is useful when you want constant updates to your calculations but need to separate the data onto other sheets.

Step 1

Open the Excel file.

Step 2

Click on the cell you want to create the reference in. Type "=."

Step 3

Go to the other sheet with the data you want to reference. The sheet location is on the bottom of Excel.

Step 4

Click the cell you want to reference. Press "Enter."
