## Extract Certain Entries From A List...

Nov 3, 2009

I have a list of U.S. cities and their crime numbers. The list contains roughly 8700 records. What I need to do is pull the records for 10 specific cities from that list. Exactly which cities are singled out may change from year to year.
And this is something I'll need to do every year when the crime stats are released by the FBI.

## Extract Unique Distinct List From Two Columns With Array Formula And Sort From A To Z

May 30, 2014

I have two lists in different columns, which are defined ranges. I want to extract them to a unique list with an array formula and at the same time sort albafetically, without duplicates, like this:

List1
List2

Final List

Audi
Ford

[Code] ....

So far, I have this formula which is working in what concerns removing duplicates and exctract a unique list. But it is not ordering alfabeticaly.

{=IFERROR(IFERROR(INDEX(List1, MATCH(0, COUNTIF(\$D\$1:D1, List1), 0)), INDEX(List2, MATCH(0, COUNTIF(\$D\$1:D1, List2), 0))), "")}

## Generate From Larger List Short List That Meets Multiple Criteria?

Mar 27, 2014

I have a large amount of data, 40,000+ rows about how students do in remedial classes including from whom they took the classes. I have pulled from it a subset of student success as relates to the separate instructors. Now I would like to extract a consolidated list of those instructors for whom the student gain on criterion based pre and post course assessments is above a specific level. I have no trouble writing if statements that will look at two types of data, the course taken and the average student increase to determine which instructors meet or surpass the criterion, but I can only do that within a list that includes all the instructors. Because there are more than an hundred such instructors, it would be easier for the dean if I could provide a short list of those that meet specific criteria. I believe that it would be an array that I should use, but I have been fooling around with this for 2 days now, and am finding myself at a series of deadends!

## Extract Last And Next-to-last Entries In A Range

For the next to the last entry:

=INDEX(A:A,MATCH(LOOKUP(REPT("z",255),A:A),A:A,0)-2)

For the last entry:

=LOOKUP(REPT("Z",255),A:A) .....

## Extract Unique Entries

Oct 4, 2006

I have a list with many names, several of them appearing more than once. I would like to extract the unique entries an then make the list of them.

I can do that using the filter. But can I do it with formulas ? (In order to, whaterever change is made to the first list, get the extracted one immediately updated).

## Drop-Down List: Generate A List Based On The Value Of A Cell

Jan 7, 2009

I am trying to generate a list based on the value of a cell. That list will then be used as the range for a drop-down list. Example: Cell A1 returns a value of 15
A drop-down list displays the values 1 through 15. Cell A1 changes to 20
Drop-down list displays the values 1 through 20. I assume I'll need a two-step macro to accomplish this but I can't figure out the logic to populate the drop-down.

## Using A List In A Pivot Table To Generate A List On Another Sheet

Jul 29, 2008

I have a set of accounts (general ledger accounts) that the accounting group posts expenses to. every once in awhile a new account is added. This is captured through a pivot that i have built (sheet A).

on another sheet (sheetB) i want to display the accounts that are shown in the pivot so that i can forecast their future activity.

What i am trying to figure out is how can i make the list on Sheet B change when new accounts are added to the pivot on Sheet A (without simply referencing the pivot table making one cell equal the other)? I am not looking for a data validation pull down, i want a full list of the accounts.

## Syncing Two Lists Of Data For One List Of Individuals - One List Has Multiple Entries

Jan 20, 2014

I need to consolidate these two lists of data into one list.

First set is just a basic list of individuals with their data.

Second set is multiple entries for those same individuals. Each entry shows a subscription to a programme. The final single sheet should have one row per individual which shows all of the programmes they are subscribed to.

See attached, example sheet.

The real list is 3000 IDs, so need some kind of formula to do this.

## Finding List Which Has Most Similar Entries To Reference List

Apr 26, 2014

I have two lists of product data, one for buyers and one for sellers (these are listed as A, B, C). The product names are not exactly the same (Eg Playstation and playstation three should be matched), I would have thought using the FuzzyLogic add in to match these would be the way forward! I need to rank the sellers by how many of their items appear on the buyers list

## Filtering A LONG List To Entries In A Shorter List

Nov 10, 2008

I have a list of email aliases for my company, approx 10,000 entries, mapping the alias to an email address. Two columns, one the alias firstname.surname, second column being the full email address. I have a second list, a subset of these aliases, approx 1200 of them, that are users of a particular web app. All i have in this list though, is the firstname.surname bit.

What I need to do is compare the lists, and where the aliases match I need to pull out the corresponding full email address from the long list, so I have 1200 aliases in the shorter list, with the full email address mapped to it. Is this possible in excel? i've tried all sorts of LOOKUP functions, and MATCH functions, but none seem to work. MATCH will give me the corresponding row number in the long list, but then it seems to offset itself every row it goes down, so the values are 1 out for every row. First row is good, second row -1, third row -3, fourth row -4 etc.

I don't want to have to manually go through 1200 entries and match them against a 10,000-entry list. Hopefully there's a quick way in excel to filter the long list down to the entries specified in the short list?

## Macro To Paste Unique Entries Of A List Into Another List

## Loop Deletes Previous Entries From Array

Oct 17, 2006

I think the loop is deleting my previous entries and only putting the last results in.

For assortedrowindex = 3 To 400
targetdate = Date
Do While Month(targetdate) = Month(Date)
Redim Preserve arrTransactions(assortedrowindex - 2)
arrTransactions(assortedrowindex - 2).CUSIP = Cells(assortedrowindex, 12)
arrTransactions(assortedrowindex - 2).OrderDate = Cells(assortedrowindex, 9)
arrTransactions(assortedrowindex - 2).BuyCurncy = Cells(assortedrowindex, 2)
arrTransactions(assortedrowindex - 2).SelCuurncy = Cells(assortedrowindex, 4)
arrTransactions(assortedrowindex - 2).Fund = Cells(assortedrowindex, 7)
arrTransactions(assortedrowindex - 2).SettleDate = Cells(assortedrowindex, 10)
arrTransactions(assortedrowindex - 2).BuyUnits = Cells(assortedrowindex, 15)
arrTransactions(assortedrowindex - 2).FxRate = Cells(assortedrowindex, 16)
If targetdate < arrTransactions(assortedrowindex - 2).SettleDate Then
' Sheets("Sheet2").Activate...............................

## Auto Generate List

Feb 26, 2008

I have an event that is one week long (7 days), with three functions happening each day (7 days - 3 columns per day).

There are 11 groups with various number of possible attendees listed in rows. Attendees of a given function is indicated by entry of a 1 or 2 (attending partner), Blank = not attending.
I would like to show a list of the attendees for a given function by clicking or moving my mouse pointer on the event function column header.

The list would need to be automatically updated when the attendees status changes (entry or deletion of 1 or 2)

## Generate Three Different Results From One List

Feb 25, 2010

Find attached an example sheet. I have one list with data... Name, Handle, Result. I want to have three lists from that data

List 1 would have top ten highest results
List 2 would have top ten lowest results

Some results will be the same so I would need each Name listed as they appear in the main list until ten is reached. List 3 would have top ten handle, but would not include anyone in list 1 or 2. This will be a shared workbook

## How To Generate User-defined List

Mar 6, 2012

This is what I'm trying to achieve: Display a list box (or any other appropriate form/active X control) to get input from the users which is usually a list of several terms. Once they've input the list, upon clicking 'OK' it should add them all to Col. B.

The above request WILL be a good solution, but if there is an advanced solution to this for eg., something like a list box with buttons, for instance: click on 'Articles' and it populates 'a,' 'an,' & 'the, click on 'Prepositions' and it populates all the pre-fed prepositions, etc. that would be PERFECT!

## Generate List Based On Differences?

Apr 22, 2012

How to generate a list base on the differences of another list. let me explain; I have a list of combination A1:F2200 each row of course the numbers have difference, example:

589162045620273342451261419316121721264271837414551

As you see the difference in the first row for this small example is 317425 and the list base on this difference is :

145121641256131742367141843478151944589162045691017214671011182247811
1219234891213202449101314212550111415222651121516232752131617242853

The maximum number is 53. doing this one time find, but I have to do it with my 2200 difference.

## Generate A List With The Date Of Every Other Friday

May 30, 2009

On my timesheet, there is a button that, when clicked, allows you to select a pay period end date. Our pay periods end every other Friday. When the button is clicked, it opens a form I designed that has a listbox that I manually entered every pay period for the year into. Here is the code I used:

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
' Populate the ListBox control.

What I'd like to do instead is have VBA populate the listbox (or combobox or what have you) dynamically, by using a reference point (say, the first pay period of the year) and then populating every other Friday from that point forward. Also, it would be great if it could reference the current date as to only list pay period end dates in the future (or even the two prior to todays date, and then maybe 3 or 4 pay period end dates in the future).

## Generate New File For Each Entry Of A List

Aug 19, 2009

I have a database file with a list of components. Each component has manufacturers name, part number, description etc. I need to create an individual file from each of the components in the list. I would like a quick and easy way to copy the information in each Row and generate a new file for each Row containing the existing template I have.

## Generate List That Match Criteria

Nov 23, 2006

I have been working on a project with 30 products and 20 different companies.

I am working on a business case, where there are launch dates for various companies with expected sales, contribution margin, NPV etc.

The idea is that I can create specific scenarios (What is Company1 doesn't launch the products, etc), and there is an accompanying each company. Because it can be difficult to see what products are included in the current calculations, I would like to use some kind of function that produces a list that matches my criteria. (In this case, all cells for a company that are larger than 0).

I would like to find a function that finds all products that have a launch date and create a list of them -- without spaces between non-matched results. And that it updates whenever data is changed (new launch year or new product in company's profile)

I have included a generic excel file to show what I am going for.

## Generate Drop Down List From Another Sheet

## Generate Matrix Of Buttons From List Of Values

Feb 20, 2013

Maybe this problem is not too much complicated for some of you experts. I have this:

I have in sheet "Products", in column A, a lists of Products from row 2 to N. (Product 1 , Product 2, Product 15, Product 37, etc).

How to generate in sheet "Menu" a matrix of buttons with the label of each button taken from the value of each cell in column A of sheet1.

I mean, the buttons would have the label Product 1 , Product 2, Product 15, Product 37, etc. Each button associated with macro "My_Macro".

I would like that the buttons be organize as simetrical as possible (regarding number of rows and columns)

* I'm attaching sample file with input in sheet "Products" and output desired for those few products. The real list could have 100 Products.

## List Box Selected Item To Generate Sheet Name

Feb 12, 2014

The below is causing me an issue as it is setting the ws value to equal nothing instead of sheet1 or sheet2 etc. I have my dimensions set above and there are no spelling mistakes.

It falls down on the
VB : Set LastRow = ws.Range("a65536").End(xlUp)
line but this seems to happen because ws is set to nothing.

VB:
For iramp2 = 0 To ListBox1.ListCount - 1
If ListBox1.Selected(iramp2) Then
Set ws = ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("Sheet" & iramp2)
End If

[Code] .....

## Generate Unique List Meeting Criteria?

Apr 21, 2014

I have 2 columns of data in one sheet that list dates (say Master Dates) and transactions (say Master Transactions).

In another sheet i would like a formula that can choose the correct transactions that fall between certain dates (call Date Beginning and Date End) and generate a list.

i have tried this array:

If((Master Dates>=Date Beginning)*(Master Dates<Date End),Master Transactions,"")

Problem with this is when used in different columns for different date ranges there are large gaps in the generated list...

## Generate Random Numbers From A Frequency List

Jun 21, 2007

I have a frequency list (frequency per year) resulted from previous calculation. What I want is to generate random number as many as the frequency in the specified year, so that every year I will get the same amount of random numbers as the frequency. It is kind of the opposite of FREQUENCY function (but with random numbers involved). I need to use the result for further calculation.
