Help creating a food costing spreadsheet on Excel

Hi there,

Im hoping someone out there can help me with how to create a speadsheet.

I have a food business and I need to create a costing spreadsheet. What I need is for a main sheet to contain all the ingredients in one column eg butter, flour. The next column will contain the unit cost eg. $.79. And the next column would need to contain the unit weight.

Then I was hoping to be able to use that list of items over and over again on mulitple recipes, (so that I dont have to retype each time). Maybe using drop down lists would be easiest. But I was hoping that the unit cost and price would also automatically insert also.

Im pretty stuck how to do this. I have made one before, but I have to copy the ingredients for each recipe manually.

Any help would be much appreciated.

I can email through my current spreadsheet so you can see what I am trying to achieve. I am sure I can do this in a more streamlined and simplier way.

Thanks in advance.

I think 'Hlookup' and 'Vlookup' would help if you are determined to use Excel. Other than that an Access database would handle it better. PM me if you want me to try the spreadsheet for you.
