    Hi. I have three google spreadsheet. First sheet is named "Summary. It is a table containing the name of our employee and number of evaluation in a week from 1-7. The next sheet is named "Chat Score"and third sheet is named Ëmail Score". What I want to to do is when we input a evaluation score to one of our employee it will be automatically recorded on the "Summary sheet" as evaluation 1 or 2 and so on and so forth. In short I want to get multiple return value in a single seach key across multiple sheet. I hope you can help. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1lt-e4MxddUKg5xDt_0YchBiEgGe4mFKB-dHENwwtA6Y/edit?usp=sharing

    Although I'm looking up my values in another worksheet (I don't think this should cause a problem?), I only seem to have success dragging to the right if I go in and change the +1 to '0' for the 1st instance of the lookup ID, '1' for the 2nd instance and so on. I know how many instances of the lookup ID I have so I can workaround. What do I need to change to allow me to successfully drag the fx across horizontally without needing to edit (i.e getting the #NUM to appear once there are no more lookup values to return).
