    Display names listed in multiple columns.

    Hello,

    I have a giant payroll sheet I need to filter. It lists every paycheck for every employee within a calendar year. So it has over a million rows. It also has three columns for names, last, first and middle initial. I need to create a formula that will look over all three columns and display only once on a different sheet each unique name. For example, my name Robinson, Brent and blank in the middle initial column can occur 20 times, but I need it to only list me once on the other sheet.

    Thank you,

    On the Ribbon, Data, Sort & Filter, Advanced and follow prompts for a display of unique records.

    Re: Display names listed in multiple columns.

    Thank you for your quick response.

    Now I am running into a problem.

    I used the following SUMIF formula;

    =SUMIFS(Sheet1!I2:I2235,Sheet1!E2:E2235,A2,Sheet1!F2:F2235,B2,Sheet1!G2:G2235,C2)

    I'm trying to get it to sum the total amount paid by paycheck if the First Name matches the Middle initial matches the last name. The results are returning either $0 or Tens of millions of dollars.

    Re: Display names listed in multiple columns.

    set up a helper column in first sheet like: =TRIM(E2)&" "&TRIM(F2)&" "&TRIM(G2) in H2 for example, assuming that in these columns are your names.
    Copy it over to your second sheet, A2 and remove duplicates.
    Then =SUMIF(Sheet1!I2:I2235,Sheet1!H2:H2235,A2)
    Assuming that I column has numerical values, it should return the summed values for each name.
