Generating A Repeating List Of Names From An Ever Changing Roster.

May 2, 2006

I have a workbook where Sheet 1 Col A is a list of dates. Sheet 2 Col A is a relatively short list of constantly changing names. I need to put this list of names in a repeating fashion in Sheet 1 Col B. Ideally I would like for Sheet 1 to regenerate Col B each time the roster list is changed.

Prevent Duplicates In Formula Generating Same Names

Nov 7, 2006

The following attacted program is a name generator. It randomly generates names from the Roster sheet to the shuffle sheet (to be randomized) then displays it on the watchbill sheet. The problem I'm having is that the names seem to be repeating themselves before the entire list is used at least once from the roster sheet. I need all the names to generate at least once then have it fairly repeat the names (but not in the same columns on the watchbill sheet). Can this be done using the formulas I have? I've been trying to figure this out forever, its just a little beyond my level.

Index And Match Function Across Multiple Rows With Repeating Names?

Jun 4, 2014

I have a data set where the row headings repeat a lot. I have 5 headers repeated probably 30-45 times each. Eg. Truck, Car, Van, Tank, House, Car

At the moment I am using the formula...
=INDEX($B$2:$M$45,MATCH($O$2,$A$2:$A$45,0),MATCH(O4,$B$1:$M$1,0))

which will only return the result of the first occurrence of the cell it is looking for (for eg. I am looking for the values in the cells in columns labelled 'Car', is it possible for it to look past the first occurrence in the data set and find all the values?

Generating A Combinations List

Feb 5, 2007

I have ten numbers (i.e. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10) and I'm trying to figure out how to make Excel generate a list of all the combinations possible for these 10 numbers. I'm trying to avoid using a VBA script. Is it possible to accomplish this task only using a function formula? This way I will have the ability to tweak the formula and test different qauntities of numbers (i.e. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 or 44,56,77,33). Is getting a list of all possible combinations to output on a single column with commas between numbers possible with a formula?

Generating Random Number List

Oct 20, 2009

I have a spreadsheet of 1000+ companies and I want to take a random sampling of 100 of them. I would assume this could be accomplished by auto-filling a numerical value to each line of data (which I did), then scrambling only the column with the numbers (which I can't figure out), and then selecting the entire text and resorting it to put the numbers back in order and then just work with the first 100 rows (which I can do, if I knew how to make the numbers random).

What I need is to create a list of all the values in Colum B that are related to "ABC"

Colum A Colum B
ABC 10
ABC 20
ABC Test

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.

Generating List Of Combinations With Both Unique / Independent And Dependent Input

Mar 26, 2012

I coordinate access requests for several contracts, and I have to list the approved accesses in a list where each line represents one person and one contract. For each access request, there will be an arbitrary number of persons obtaining access to an arbitrary number of contracts.

The input would then be as follows: Joe A and Jill B request access to contracts 1001, 1002 and 1003 ->

Joe A   1001
Joe A   1002
Joe A   1003
Jill B     1001
Jill B     1002
Jill B     1003

To automate this task, I have made a simple macro for generating a combination list of all persons having obtained access to a selection of contracts.

My macro worked well when I only wanted to list unique and independent list items, but now I have been asked to include each person's email address. How I can change my code so that only one email address is copied into my list for each person?

Code:
Sub AccessList()
Sheets("requests").Select
Dim rng As Range, c As Range
Dim rng1 As Range, c1 As Range
Dim rng2 As Range, c2 As Range

Generating Average From Group Of Numbers In List That Match Two Criteria?

Jan 29, 2013

So we had a month long, company paid (woohoo!) "weight watchers" challenge. On 1 worksheet ("Stats"), I have the Name of every Employee (A Column), then their Start Weight (B Column), End Weight (C Column), Department (D Column) and finally Location (E Column).

I know how sensative some people can be about their weight, so I locked the page and created another worksheet named "UI", which will display the "Average End Weight" for each department. So Human Resources would be the department in cell A2 on the UI sheet, with City 1 being the Column Header in cell B1. There are 8 cities (offices) and 23 departments.

So, for cell B2, I want to scan through the "Stats" worksheet and locate all of the cells in the department and location columns that read "Human Resources" and "City 1" respectively. Then grab the "End Weight" for every row that meets these 2 criteria, add them up, and divide by the number of "End Weights" that were grabbed.

My solution would be to make a separate column for each department (and then each city, so essentially 8 columns to represent all the cities for each department), use a nested (maybe 4) IF statements to then list only the end weight if that particular row meets the criteria, then at the bottom of each separate column, add all the shown numbers up and divide, then draw the information from THAT number into the "Average" cell on the UI worksheet. But it isn't very dynamic and if i want to use this sheet next year, there will be more employee info to be added and it would be a mess..further more, it would be...what...23 Departments x 8 Cities x 155 employees = ~28,500 added cells.

Generating A List Of The Five Most Common Responses (Text-Based Mode)

Sep 11, 2009

I would like to generate a dynamic list of the top five most common text responses in a range. For simplicity sake, let's assume that the range spans cells A1 to A20, and the list is generated in cells B1 to B5. So, essentially, I am seeking five separate formulas. One to calculate the most common text element, one to calculate the second most common text element, one to calculate the third most common text element and so forth.

I am currently working with the two formulas below but finding it incredibly difficult to merge them into a working format.

Formula for finding second most common number:
=MODE(IF(IF(A1:A20"",A1:A20)MODE(IF(A1:A20"",A1:A20)
),IF(A1:A20"",A1:A20),""))

Formula for finding most common text element:
=INDEX(A1:A20,MODE(IF(ISTEXT(A1:A20
),MATCH(A1:A20,A1:A20,0))))

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.

Index And Match With Repeating Values Without Repeating First Found Name

Apr 20, 2006

sorting data I use in a workbook for athletics. I've really chopped down my workbook for upload, In the worksheet "Leaderboard" I can call up stats for different lifts, and it finds (in this case) the top 5 lifts and the names for the kids that have those corresponding lifts.

My problem is that when two or more kids have the same lift, it will only call up the name of the first instance of that lift. You can see this in the "Leaderboard" worksheet, and the name "Adams, Andrew" appears for both lifts of 75. I would appreciate any help on how to correct this, as I've searched the Internet for weeks now looking for a solution. I've tried experimenting with different things as well, all to no avail.

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 firms 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 its slightly different and return the row of values for each opportunity created for that client on a separate row?

I can do this myself in a pivot chat with count totals but my issue is how I can show the number of codes greater than -1.

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
NADAL PARERA Rafael
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
Rafael Nadal Parera
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.
