Sorting A-Z Linked List In Same Sheet?

Mar 11, 2009

I have a list of movie titles A3-A9999(Infinity), their disc numbers in B3-B9999(Infinity). The titles being written in text, of course.

All I want to do, is have another list, in the same sheet in D3-D9999 that will be the same list as the original list that I input movies onto, except alphabetical and automatic from when I type in the movie title in the original list. When i just use "=A1, =A2, =A3 ~~~ =A999" in the D cells, then try to sort, it only sorts by the cell numbers, not by the actual text that I want it to.

Is there a way to do this? I know excel relatively well, but I'm definitely a noob compared to experts.

Excel 2007 :: Data Validation List Linked To Different Sheet?

Dec 11, 2012

I am using excel 2007

I am attempting to put a drop down list using "Data Validation". I can get it working when my list is on the same sheet (sheet 1) and the column of cells I want the drop down list to show up in....(you know..when the drop down list shows up in each individual cell)......BUT...when I put the list on another sheet (sheet 2) and try to do the "Data Validation" back on sheet 1, excel won't let me go highlight the list on sheet 2.

I even tried writing sheet2 and the range and that still doesnt work.

Sorting List To A New Sheet

Feb 24, 2006

I have a database being exported to a spreadsheet with over 40 fields (columns) and 1000+ clients (rows). One of the fields (column C) incidates that referral source. I would like to copy & paste the list into sheet 1 and have 5 seperate sheets for each of the 5 different referral sources. So that when I go to sheet 2 the only thing I will see are the clients and their 40 associated fields that are referred (column C) by say "John Smith"

Is there a function or script that will search column C for "John Smith" and then fill in all the 40 fields on sheet 2.

Sorting With Two Linked Tabs

Dec 27, 2012

I am having issues sorting columns on a given worksheet. When a column is sorted in one tab, it is jumbling another column on a linked tab. Vlookup formulas are being used throughout the worksheet.

So, for example in the attached file;

Currently the way the file is set up is when a new project comes in, we put initials in the 'Audit Date' column of the 'To Be Audited' tab. That then pulls over to the 'Customer' tab via the 'No Edits-Audit Sheet'.

I want to be able to sort in the 'Customer' Tab the states, city or state A to Z and not have it mess up the 'To Be Audited' tab. Right now, when someone sorts one of the columns, the initials in the 'to be audited' tab jumble, and the initials are no longer with the original project.

Add New Entries To A List Which Is Linked To Another Workbook

Sep 28, 2009

I have a list of names in column A with monthly budget figs next to them in columns B,C,D etc. At the bottom of the list there is a total spend summary on line 7. This spreadsheet is then pasted with links to a separate worksheet (see example)

If an additional name is added to the list in Row 7 in the original list, the total is now in row 8 - how do I ensure that the linked sheetl picks up this addition?

(I have a project where I am drawing data from numerous worksheets. I have paste linked them as tabs to a summary worksheet so that funtions such as SUMIF can update when the file is closed or open)

Jan 5, 2007

I have a Main sheet that has many formula on it that link to several Data sheets. Now sometime I want to delete the data sheets and recreate them by copying a Data template sheet and remaming it to the same name as whatever my data sheet was called.

How can i stop it changing the formula path to Ref#!?

Missing Sheet In Linked File

Jun 14, 2007

I have a summary file in which I capture data from multiple sheets in one existing file (targetfile.xls).

One month might contain sheets that do not exist next month. When updating (edit) links, Excel reports an error (invalid external reference) on the first missing sheet, and does not continue checking/updating links for the rest of the document.

I tried =IF(ISERROR( SUM('[targetfile.xls]sheet1'!$M:$M)),0,SUM('[[targetfile.xls]sheet1'!$M:$M)),

Auto Copy In To Cell On A Linked Sheet

Feb 2, 2010

I am wondering if there is a formula/macro/VBA that will find the last date entered in a column and fill that date in to a cell on a linked sheet.


sheet ONE has columns C through S. (each customer has its own sheet)
On this sheet, in column H the date of the last payment made is entered. This date of course changes as payments are made, so the row would change as well.

sheet TWO has columns C through O. (all customers on this one sheet)
The rows on this sheet remain the same for each individual customer.
I would like the last date entered on sheet ONE column H to be auto copied to sheet TWO column O.

Is there a way to have the last date entered on sheet ONE auto copy to Sheet TWO?

Find And Replace :: Cell Moving Down In Linked Sheet?

Jan 26, 2010

I have a spreadsheet which is linked to other spreadsheets. When I use "find and replace" on this spreadsheet, it causes one of my linked cells to move down one row. Why does it do this? This particular cell has nothing to do with the "find and replace" option.

I have no idea how to stop this from moving this cell down.

I want to establish a link from my worksheets. Using the conventional link method I was able to link the values from my first worksheet to the second worksheet. My problem is when I delete a particular row. The reference of the second worksheet will have an error #REF! since I deleted those cells.

Disable User Access To Master Sheet Through Doubleclicking Locked Linked Cell

Feb 23, 2010

I have a master spreadsheet that houses most of the information that remains in my control, and several other user spreadsheets that update cells from that master through links.

I am having some problems lately with users doubleclicking the locked linked cells in their workbooks, and excel then wanting to open and give the user access to my master spreadsheet. Is there a way to disable this feature? I would like it to not even acknowledge the action if that's even possible because it confuses them as to why they are getting a prompt to open another document.

Sorting A List Into Tabs?

Feb 2, 2012

I have a large list of names that I am breaking into three groups based on last name (A-G, H-M, and N-Z). The spreadsheet is then sent to a group of processors who work on the names that are found on their tab.

I start out with the complete list on each tab. Then I use a For Next loop to go through each tab and delete the rows for the names that do not below on that tab. This process is working fine, but I am figuring their is a better method of doing it.

Sub PopShts()
Dim wsAG As Worksheet, wsHM As Worksheet, wsNZ As Worksheet

Sorting And Renumbering A List

Sep 13, 2006

I have a spreadsheet with a list of jobs in it, with a bunch of columns describing various aspects of the job. (Supervisor, department, etcetera.)

I also have a priority column.

What I'm looking for is to have my list renumber itself when I change the priority on jobs.

For example:

Priority Job Name Supervisor
1 Dig Ditch Ben
2 Fix Window Sira
3 Check C2 Cory
4 Check SS Ben

Let's say I change "Check C2" to be priority 1, I would like my priority list to re-order itself to:

Priority Job Name Supervisor
2 Dig Ditch Ben
3 Fix Window Sira
1 Check C2 Cory
4 Check SS Ben

Also, bear in mind that the list might not always be sorted by priority. It is just as likely to be sorted by Supervisor or one of the other columns not mentioned here. Data Validation keeps the numbers whole & positive.

My problem is mostly thus...

I try and capture the change through Worksheet_Change. However, each time it increments one of the priorities, it runs the Worksheet_Change event again, giving me priorities in a nice Fibbonacci-looking sequence. Aesthetically & mathematically interesting, but totally incorrect.

Also, for some reason, if I delete the last job (or just the priority of the last job), it never terminates the code, and runs, incrementing the code and pushing my priorities up & up & up.

This is my

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Rows.Count = 1 And Target.Columns.Count = 1 Then
If Chr(Target.Column + 64) = PriorityColumn And Target.Row > SortRow Then
Dim Changed As Boolean
Dim Max As Integer: Max = 0
Dim i As Integer

Sorting Dynamic List Of Data?

Apr 15, 2014

have data in the attached file arranged as follows:

"Source Data" sheet Data in columns A to L will be updated daily by pasting from another workbook. On any given day the data in columns A to L may have more or fewer rows than the day before.

"Lookup Table" sheet The aim is to return the data from the "Source Data" sheet; the selection depends on the Data Validation choice in cell O1.

I would like to be able to sort this dynamic list of data - ideally by clicking a single button - in descending order of the values in column L.

Sorting A List From Data In Another Worksheet

Feb 21, 2010

I have the attached workbook that contains a list of produce in the Produce sheet and I am wanting to have the Availability sheet show what produce is available each day sorted into Good, Limited and None as per the data on the Produce sheet. I should end up with a list of each type of produce listed under the relevant availability each day.

Sorry but I have limited knowledge of VB, I assume that the best way to do this is some code behind the Availability worksheet but I am not able to determine what this code should look like.

Sorting A List Randomly, And Fairly.

Jul 17, 2007

I have a list of potential competitors in an event, and am using both RAND and ROUND to sort them into a list of 1's and zeros. My formula is as follows: =ROUND(RAND()*1,0). My problem is that I get an uneven distribution of players, out of a list of forty, I may have 38 people that are 1's and 2 people that are 2's. I'd really like the list to be randomized, but evenly to allow for fair competition.

Randomly Sorting List Of Numbers Into Different Permutations

Mar 1, 2014

with this problem (which I've been trying for weeks to solve).

I have a column ("C") of 640 numbers, which I need to randomly sort and place into the adjoining (ten thousand) columns. I then need to correlate each of these 10k columns with column "B".

The problem I have with the attached (which works for small numbers), is that when I increase the table size to 640 rows and anything more than a dozen or so columns, it takes forever to calculate and Excel often crashes.

Sorting List By Its Code Chronologically Skipping First?

Apr 15, 2014

I need to create a table with the top 14 'ReNo' for each code listed in columns F1-R1. These need to be in chronological order. Also if the code is part of the latest date then that first ReNo. needs to be ignored (since it will not have completed its cycle).

getting to the formula I have but I can't get it to sort in these ways, so as it is its not working right.

Sorting A List Of Numbers By Multiple Columns

Oct 13, 2008

I want to sort the list like this:

1) If there is a zero (null) value in all 3 months, these records should be at the bottom sorted by record name (I did not show this field in my file).
2) If there is a non-zero (non-null) value in any of the 3 months, the records will be sorted with each other by total change.

Is there a way to do this without me doing sorts multiple times and manually moving rows of data around (which is what I have done to arrive at the list I have attached)? I am not experienced with VBA or Macros, and would prefer a detailed explanation if a solution is using either method.

Sorting List Of Items Into 2 Separate Lists

Oct 25, 2011

I work for a printing company that prints labels. We have 6 printing presses, lets call them A,B,C,D,E & F. Certain labels can only be printed on printing press F.

From our business system I can run a report in excel format giving details of all the labels that we have sold in the present month. I need split that report into 2 separate excel spreadsheets; 1 showing everything that was printed on presses A to E and the other showing everything printed on press F.

I also have another excel spreadsheet which gives a complete list of all the labels that have to be printed on press F.

Every label that we print has a part code and both spreadsheets show this part code so that would be the linking factor between the 2 sheets.
