Microsoft Excel - automatically copy rows and columns to another worksheet

I am an Excel novice, so this may be a very basic question -

I have a list of clients in a worksheet in Excel (with columns 'Name', 'Title', 'Company'). What I want to do is copy the list to another worksheet through some sort of link or formula, such that when I add rows to the client list worksheet, this is reflected in the other worksheet; and when I delete rows, or change data in cells, these changes update automatically in the other worksheet.

I think VLOOKUP is how to do it but I'm not sure, VLOOKUP requires common data between worksheets and I don't really have that here - I just want to show data from one worksheet in another, so I can add columns to show other kinds of info for these clients.



If the first sheet is Sheet1 then enter this formula on sheet2 A1 and then copy it down and across as far as required

=IF(INDEX(Sheet1!$1:$1048576,ROW(),COLUMN())="","",INDEX(Sheet1!$1:$1048576,ROW(),COLUMN()))

Simple question which might not have a simple answer:
Why do you need a copy of the list in another sheet? Can you not add the other columns alongside the original list?
