    Find Particular name is numerous sheets

    Hi,

    I have a workbook which contains about 60 sheets. I need to find a way of searching a particular person without having to go into each individual sheet and using the find function. Is there anyway I do this showing all the entries for that particular person.

    Any help is much appreciated


    Thanks

    Harry

    Hi,

    In short no. One way or another you will need to 'look' at all sheets whether you do this manually or with a macro.

    Without seeing your workbook it's difficult to comment further, other than to say it's more than likely that you should reconsider your data layout and rather than have]ing 60 sheets have just one, with an additional column to keep the value of whatever currently distinguishes your separate sheets.

    Hi Harry - When you click on Find, click on the Options>> button. There you can do a search within a workbook and say Find All. I'm not 100% sure if this is available in 2003 though but worked for me 2013.

    ...and just to clarify, Lisa is quite correct that you can 'show' all the names in the way she describes in the Find window.

    If you need to list them somewhere then you'll need some sort of macro.
