link data within worksheets

(OP)
I would like to have two worksheets, I'll call them A and B, within a workbook. I would like worksheet B to display only certain data or cells from worksheet A. The goal is to be able to use worksheet A for my estimating work, and have only those values which I want the customer to see automatically displayed on worksheet B. This way I can just print or email worksheet B to a customer at any time without letting them see everything on worksheet A.

I know how to link cells and copy formatting from one worksheet to the next. What I am having problems with is setting it up such that worksheet B automatically updates to display the information from worksheet A if I add additional rows to the information. So, is it possible to link a range of cells from one worksheet to another and when I add a row to that range on Worksheet A, a new row is also added and linked on worksheet B? Confusing, I know, hopefully I have adequately described what I want to accomplish. Thanks.

RE: link data within worksheets

rv,
confusing, not really.

try using the excel offset function along with range names.  while i cannot recollect the website, there is an excellent example provided for using the offset function.
i learned of it and use for monitoring vehicle mpg data (i.e. chart is automatically updated once data is entered - NO need to constantly modify chart).  i'm referring to only 1 example, but it can be expaned to accomplish others.
try checking the "ozgrid.com" website for excel, the j-walk.com website, or links from within the j-walk.com website.
i'd be willing to share the reference mpg workbook, if that will assist you in using the offset function.  please advise.
good luck!
