Questions:

I have an excel sheet that was provided to me to implement a business flow.
I see a formula in a column as below:
=[@[Inventory]]

I understand that this copies data from other column with heading ‘Inventory’. But when I try to mimic this on a different sheet for a different column , I don’t get any values. I’m I missing something here.
