Hello, I need some help on creating a formula to import the datarange from A2:E2 ( below ) from a master spreadsheet called "Complaints" to another spreadsheet Called "Investigations"  which has the same field names  A2:E2 on this spreadsheet , However I only want the data imported if  "Yes" is entered in the field (Generate Report) which is Column U in the Complaints spreadsheet. 

I have tried many formulas to no avail. 

My table looks like this

          A             B                            C                          D                   E                                               U

1    CC#      ViolAddrs              ViolStrt                Hamlet           SCTM#                               Generate Report    <-----------FEILD NAMES

2   130043     13                     Smith Street             Medford          123.-2-13                                         Yes  


Here is the link to the spreadsheet, as I still can not seem to accomplish this task...ughh.

I would like certain row data from spreadsheet complaints to be exported to spreadsheet Investigations when the Generate Report column is set to yes or not null.

The row data that I would like exported over (from spreadsheet complaints) is  within column A, B, C, D, E, L, M, N and that said data would be imported into same columns in spreadsheet investigations (A, B, C, D, E) however L, M, N would go to columns H, I, J as the information is the same. 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much.
