I would like to convert the range from Sheet 2 into database style in sheet 1. is there any way possible to accomplish this using only formulas in sheet 2? please note, the data in sheet 1 goes on continuous. I have added 2 "Test ID"s as an example.

As of this writing, you've had 85 views of your question and no replies. I'm just jumping in to offer the observation that it's not at all clear what you're seeking to do here.
You say you want to convert the range from Sheet 2 into database style in sheet 1, but then go on to ask if it's possible to do so using only formulas in sheet 2.
But Sheet 2 is the source of the data. My guess is that the question about formulas in Sheet 2 must be a typo, that you really mean for the formulas to do their work in Sheet 1. Correct?
But then there's the matter that many of your headings (most?) are inconsistent between the two Sheets. I have no doubt that you know your way around here, know that Sheet 2's "Expected Strength" with a parenthetical reference to psi underneath it, refers to "Required" on Sheet 1.... ETC.
Then there's the matter of all kinds of fancy formatting having been applied before the desired functionality has been achieved. You've heard of the notion of putting the cart before the horse, I presume. It really is a mistake to make things look fancy and pretty before they work.
All of that to say....can we back up and ask what you're really needing to do from a functional or utility point of view? Why does data in a perfectly good database (i.e., your Sheet 2) need to get rendered in an altogether different way? Are you expecting it all to get populated, with every data element from your Sheet 2 arrayed differently (somewhat confusedly) on your Sheet 1? Does it all have to be there? Could we create a "dashboard" that only extracts one ID at a time, or one set of related IDs?
It very definitely is possible to extract data from a database, and even to make it look nice (after you've figured out the extraction process itself), but let's begin first with a bigger picture (more full description) of what this is all about.
