    That was cool – how about a follow-up, showing how one could build a quote from that, maybe showing only column C and D from the right-had table, in a Pages doc?

    Sean: That’s pretty specific. Probably best at that point to just take my Numbers course and work on your own to come up with exactly what you need.

    Thanks so much for this, Gary. I did not realize there was a lookup function, I had been trying to work on a monthly budget and get a running total for each month, in the past I had to manually copy everything, from one spreadsheet to another. this will save me a lot of work and time. Thanks again for doing this.
