I work at a warehouse and I need to keep track of the trailers in and out. I want to be able to input a trailer number and have the license tag of that trailer generate into the neighboring cell from pre-inputed data.
if you have a list of trailer numbers and their respective license tags somewhere, you can use a lookup function for that. For example Vlookup. In the screenshot, the value of cell A1 is looked up in the master list in column E. If an exact match is found, the license tag from column F is returned.
