i have a database with names and id number. i also create an input sheet for sales. then i creat an invoice. here is what i need help with. when i put in any data on the input sheet i want it to be populated on the invoice. so on the input sheet i have animal name, animal id, animal price and amount of animal pruchase.

let say i want to sell animal ID #8 when i put the ID in, i want that aminal name and ID to show up on the invoice

so far i have used Vlookup but not able to get the information to change on the invoice when the input is changed on the input sheet.

The only thing I could think of is that you've forgotten to use the VALUE() function. An inpu-box generates text, you have to convert the text to a value before you can look is up with vlookup.

If that wasn 't the problem, post an example worksheet.
