    Consolidating names from multiple sheets to create one dynamic list

    Hi guys,

    I'm needing to retrieve names that can range from A2:A100 across 13 different sheets to form a list in column A of the summary page which includes every name from each sheet and updates automatically when new names are added to various sheets. See sample spreadsheet attached. I've only included 4 names per sheet for this exercise but any could have up to 100.

    Thanks!

    Why have names on multiple sheets: recombining data not the best way to use Excel.

    Look at Power query as a possible solution.

    Re: Consolidating names from multiple sheets to create one dynamic list

    Office 365 on windows enterprise. I need them in different sheets as that is how the data is being supplied from over a dozen different areas. This data will continue to be updated so putting it in one sheet won't work. Whether it's the best way to use excel or not we need to find a formula that can do this.

    If the data is in a consistent format i.e all sheets the same, then Power Query is likely to prove the tool to use.

    Ok, thanks! The isnít in consistent format at the moment but if I can rectify that Iíll have a go at Power Query. I havenít worked with that before but Iíll watch some content on it.

    Re: Consolidating names from multiple sheets to create one dynamic list

    Here is an example of how Power Query could be used as John suggested.
    1. Convert all ranges into tables.
    Note that only the rows with data are included as the table will expand contract as data is added or removed.
    2. Use the following Power Query Advanced Editor code:
