Etc
However Person1 May Not Be On The List Today. In Which Case I Need Row2 Blank

## List Names In Alphabetical Order From Multiple Worksheets

Mar 3, 2007

I'm trying to get this formula to work across multiple worksheets. It suppose to list names in alphabetical order. I'm using these define names to get it to work. Also may I have another formula that list unique names in alphabetical order?

Col_A=T(INDIRECT("''"&XWSLST&"'!A"&(2+MOD(S,N))))
N=50
S=ROW(INDIRECT("1:"&(N*ROWS(WSLST))))-1
WSLST=Sheet6!\$D\$2:\$D\$5

=IF(ROWS(\$E\$2:E2)<= COUNTIF(Col_A,"?*"),INDEX(Col_A,MATCH(LARGE(COUNTIF(Col_A,">"&Col_A),ROWS(\$E\$2:E2))=S+1,COUNTIF(Col_A,">"&Col_A),0)),"")

## Custom Sort Order

Feb 13, 2007

I feel I've searched thoroughly and wasn't able to find the right answer. I've attached a daily report example that needs the "Product" field to be sorted in a particular order. The order should be JEX, Q3791J, YOO5, KLX9, GHT (all similar products need to be grouped together).

Since the report is run daily the number of rows changes daily: one day can have 50 entries and the next 10. Is there a way to dictate the sort order and insert a blank row between each product grouping?

Once the Products have been separated into their groups, how would I sort each grouping by the "Term" column?

## VBA - Create Worksheet Custom Order

## Custom Order Template VBA Or Macro

Mar 11, 2008

I am trying to write a formula whether it be in VBA or a Macro that will do the following.

In cell A7 and A10 there are validation boxes that drop down with a list of items that can be selected.

We want the user to be able to add multiple items under each month but keep the list to only what is needed. Therefor the function I am trying to get is once cell A7 has a selction or isnot blank or is greater than 0 we want to add a line directly below it with all the same functionality as line 7. Everything else will shift down and maintain the same functionality.

I have a attached a sample workbook... Can this be done

## Selecting Custom Tab Order On Worksheet?

Jan 23, 2014

## Create A Custom Sort Order

May 13, 2009

I am trying to create custom sort list. It works below when I define range as A1:A79.

Sub SortWS2()
Dim SortOrder As Variant
Dim sheetsorder As Range
Dim Ndx As Long
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
With Worksheets("Sort Order").Range("A1:A79")
For Ndx = .Cells.Count To 1 Step -1
Worksheets(.Cells(Ndx).Value).Move before:=Worksheets(1)
Next Ndx
End With
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

I have created a dynamic range called sheetsorder. If I revise my code it does not work.

Sub SortWS2()................

## Custom Sort Change Month Order

Jul 10, 2014

Is it possible to do a custom sort on a column so that I can change the order the way the months are sorted. The order I'm looking for is:

October
November
December
January
February
March
April
May
June
July
August
September

Also the format for the cells in that column is 01-Jan, I don't want to see the year because I enter and sort the date as if the year doesn't matter so it automatically registers as 2014, if that makes sense. Basically I want that order of the months regardless of the year.

## Create A List Of Unique Names From A List Of Multiple Names

Oct 21, 2009

I have a database output file where one of the columns contains managers names, often more than once. I want to apply an autofilter on manager name and then copy the result to another sheet or sheets. My criteria for the autofilter is a variable pointing to a list of names that at present I maintain by hand; a for-each-next loop then cycles through the names.

What I would like to do, before running the autofilter code, is to create the list of names via code. This would then automatically pickup names that are missing.

The code I have so far is below:

Public Sub find_managers()
Dim managers1 As Range
Dim names1 As Range
Dim n1 As Variant
Dim n2 As Variant

In my mind it should check the names in the unique list against the imported list and add any missing names.

## How To Compare List Of 1000 Names To List Of 59k Names

Jul 31, 2014

I need to compare two lists of client names. One list has 59k names to be compared to second list of 1000 names.
The list of 59k are listed in column D and the other list is in Column E. I tried conditional formatting but unfortunately some of the names are slightly different I.e. fair point communications vs fair point communications inc. I was trying to put in v lookup with a trim function but it didn't seem to be working.

## Pull Customer Names Who Placed Order In Jan-Aug But Not Sept

Oct 2, 2013

I have a spreadsheet with data of customer orders. I am looking for a way to pull the customers who have placed an order between January and August, but did NOT place an order in September (in order to reach out to those customers who have stopped ordering).

I can't post attachments for some reason, so this is a description of how the sheet looks.

Column:
A - Delivery Date (MM/DD/YYYY)
B - Month (MM) --> formula created to pull month from column A. For example 2/12/2013 returns "2"
C - First Name
D - Last Name

I need to find a way to create a list of customers, without duplicates, who placed an order previous to Sept, but not in Sept. So, pull unique names from column C and D that have an entry in column B of 1-8, but NOT 9.

## Names In Alphabetical Order Based On Totals

## Create Dropdown That Will List All Names Starting With Initial Letter Of Names?

Jan 13, 2014

I have a long customer listing, names 5 to 36 characters and several with their location in the name as well as a few common duplicate names. I am trying to produce sheet where the customers name once selected opens in the customers spreadsheet and data can be added/amended for sales etc.The lists are not in alphabetical order as when created a customer number is automatically allocated. My aim is just to type in the first letter of the name and the dropdown appears the customer is selected and their card appears. I have tried data validation, lookup, vlookup, Dropdown and Match/find. they only return the first record found and no sign of any others. Find returned all instances of the letter appearing in every name.

## Looking Names In A List With Names Written Differently And With Duplicates

Aug 26, 2008

I am using Excel 2003 and Windows XP.

I have been given a list of my firm’s target clients (in excel) and an opportunities report (exported into excel) from our CRM system, which lists all the opportunities (i.e. opportunities to sell/provide products/services) that have been created for each client. Some of the column headings in the opportunities report are as follows:

Client; Opportunity ID; Opportunity Name; Opportunity Description; Created by; Date Created etc.

What I need to do is lookup each client, from the target clients listing, in the opportunities report to see whether an opportunity has been created; and if so, return the row of values (i.e. the Opportunity ID; Opportunity Name; Opportunity Description; Created by; Date Created) for that client. The result will be placed next to the name of the client in the target client worksheet.

I have a couple of problems. Initially I tried to use the VLOOKUP function to lookup the client name in the opportunities report and return the Opportunity ID (I then planned to use the same formula to return values from the other columns); however, as the client names in the target client listing were not always written the same way as they were in the opportunities report, the formula often returned #N/A. The formula I used was

=VLOOKUP(A8,'Opportunities Report'!A2:F51,2,FALSE)

So for example, the first client that I was looking up was written as “ABC Ltd” but in the opportunities report it was written as “ABC Limited”.

My second problem was that for some clients, there were multiple opportunities listed in the opportunities report. Where this was the case, there was a separate row (repeating the client name in the first column) for each opportunity created. I think that was messing up my VLOOKUP formula as well.

Is there a way to look up the client name, from the target client listing, in the opportunities report even if it’s slightly different and return the row of values for each opportunity created for that client on a separate row?

## Reorder List Of Names With Capitalized Last Names

Feb 24, 2014

I'm trying to sort out a list of names from a website that publishes names in the following format:

DOE John
VAN GOGH Vincent
DA VINCI Leonardo
JIMENEZ RODRIGUEZ Miguel Angel

What I'd like to do is get the names in the following format

John Doe
Vincent Van Gogh
Leonardo Da Vinci
Miguel Angel Jimenez Rodriguez

Basically all the last names - which are all capitalized - would be moved to the end of the text string. Of course any leading spaces should be removed and I guess using the Proper() function, all capitalized words could be capitalized in a standard way.

I found the following function, here: [URL] ...

but what it does is just take the capitalized words and separate them into a separate cell, which is not all of what I want.

## Replace Bad Names From A List Of Good Names

May 14, 2009

The problem is that different users are entering data on sheet1 col A in different ways example someone may enter Johnc or John C Or John What I want is for something to run down col A on sheet1 and look for the like name on the master sheet if the name matches then do nothing but if the name is like another name on the master sheet then replace the name if they are almost alike.

## Randomly Select Four Names From List Of Names

## Keeping Track Of Scores And Automatically Displays Names Of Players In Descending Order?

Feb 7, 2012

I'm fairly new to using excel and have been trying to create a simple spreadsheet that keeps track of scores and automatically displays the names of the players in descending order. Anyway I have gotten to the point of using hookup to match a value and return that players name. But when two players have the same score it will only return the first found value. I sort the number scores using a LARGE function and it works great. Then I use something like this =HLOOKUP(Y2,B27:K28,2,FALSE) to match that value with the players name. How to return the other players name when the scores are the same?

## List Teams In Rank Order From List

Dec 27, 2009

How do I list selected data by order of appearance in a list?

Suppose I have a named range somewhere in my workbook called "TeamsRanked".

This range contains hundreds of names. The data associated with each of these names appears in a table in the workbook in rank order. The teams are ranked in descending order according to points scored. This means that the ROW() for the HIGHER-Ranked teams will be LOWER than the ROW() for the LOWER-Ranked teams. Also, this named range is constantly being resorted as updated data is introduced.

Now...Suppose I want to monitor just a few of the names??

For example: Cells A1:A3 on a separate worksheet contain the names of the teams I want to monitor.

What formula do I need in Cell A5 to return the HIGHEST ranked of the teams in Cells A1:A3??
...in Cell A6, to return the next highest ranked.
...in Cell A7, to return the LOWEST ranked.

I tried some IF(ROW(MATCH...)) ---"is less than" ---IF(ROW(MATCH...)) formulas...and I keep getting INVALIDs in my formula palette.

## Sort Command - Custom Order Or Sort Ascending Or Descending

Oct 8, 2006

Is it possible to make excel sort ascending or descending but from mid way through alphabet and then loop through the alphabet again. for example. If Cell A1 had "A" in, it would sort as normal.

Cell A1 = A
Cell A2 = B
Cell A3 = C
Cell A4 = D
Cell A5 = E

If Cell A1 had "C" in, it would sort from "C" through the alphabet and then loop to the start of the alphabet as shown below.

Cell A1 = C
Cell A2 = D
Cell A3 = E
Cell A4 = A
Cell A5 = B

## Relating List Of Random Numbers To A List Of Names To Create Rota

I'm trying to create a staff rota which will populate a rota randomly when prompted - I have been trying to find some way of connecting the random lists and the staff names, though this has proved difficult (to say the least!). How best to proceed? I'm also fully aware of the possibility that my present design will also double book people (place then on reception and telephone duty simultaneously).

## Copying A List Of Data To List Of Range Names

Jun 5, 2006

I do not have any code for this as I am unsure if it is possible. I have a list of range names in a column (A) that refer to different sheets and in an adjacent column (B) I have a list of data. Is it possible to write VBA code that will allow me to copy each value in column B to the corresponding cell in the workbook that relates to the range name in column A.
