copy selected rows to second worksheet (NOT Cut + Paste)

I am trying to create a simple tool log that also incorporates a sign in/out
sheet as a second worksheet.
What I want is to be able to select (not using cut + paste) several rows and
by simply being selected on "tool list" worksheet, temporarly copied into
"sign_in" and "sign_out" worksheets.
I need the data selected from sheet 1 "tools list" to fill rows (starting at
20) of the next 2 sheets, and then end user simply prints needed sheet, for
employee to sign.

This allows me to select only the tools that that employee is checking
in/out at that time and print that list from a second (or third) sheet along
with data in previous 20 lines.

I would prefer to be able to keep this workbook protected, but it is not a
nessessity.

Let's say you mark the rows you want by placing an "X" in column A. To pull
column B of selected rows, could do this array* formula:

=IF(ROWS(A$20:A20)>COUNTIF('Sheet 1'$A:$A,"X"),"",INDEX('Sheet
1'!B:B,SMALL(IF('Sheet 1'!$A$1:$A$2000="X",ROW($A$1:$A$2000)),ROW($A1))))

Copy this over to the right as needed, and then down far enough to allow the
maximum amount of entries. If you are splitting this over multiple sheets,
and a set amount (say 100) entries go on first sheet, modify as so:

=IF(ROWS(A$20:A20)+100>COUNTIF('Sheet 1'$A:$A,"X"),"",INDEX('Sheet
1'!B:B,SMALL(IF('Sheet
1'!$A$1:$A$2000="X",ROW($A$1:$A$2000)),ROW($A1)+100)))

*Array formulas must be confirmed using Ctrl+Shift+Enter, not just Enter.

If desired, send your file to my address below. I will only look if:
1. You send a copy of this message on an inserted sheet
2. You give me the newsgroup and the subject line
3. You send a clear explanation of what you want
4. You send before/after examples and expected results.
