The strength of two cells of different sheets of the same value

Hello world

I have a spreadsheet with multiple sheets, I want to add some features to.

At the present time, I have a cell that refers to a cell in a different sheet, so if I changed the value of the cell on sheet 2, it will update on sheet 1. But I had to update the cell directly on sheet 1, it would not be updated on sheet 2.

I want to have it set up so that if I changed the value to 1 or 2 of the worksheet, the cell is updated in both places. AKA, it forces the two cells to be always the same, regardless of the cell is edited to make the change.

Is this possible in number? My language is clear? Any comment is appreciated. Thanks in advance!

The fundamental problem is that a cell of numbers can contain a value or a formula, but not both at the same time.  So when you enter a value in a cell, the value you enter will overwrite any formula or a value that was already there.  So I don't think that what you want to do is possible by using formulas.

It is possible using AppleScript, but probably isn't worth it.

Can you explain a little more why you want to do this?  There may be another way to organized the document, you don't need this.
