    Auto Populating a list based on quantity

    I am in a situation were I generate parts lists for different parts of the manufacturing process. The main processes I need are to generate cut lists for material, and generate labels for the parts. I am able to generate the cut list no problem, but when it comes to labels, I am forced to do it pseudo manually. i.e. copy the quantity and part number to a sheet, insert the appropriate rows for that part and then copy the part number down. after all that I can generate a mailnerge and print the labels. My hope is to find a way/program to read the quantity and automatically generate the labels list ready for merging. Attached is a file I am currently working on, and you can see better what I mean.

    Any help appreciated!
    David.

    Try the following:
    1. Add a column (modeled in column L starting with row 5) on Sheet1, populated using: =SUM(L4,A5)
    2. Use the following formula to produce the labels: =INDEX(Sheet1!F$5:F$65,AGGREGATE(15,6,(ROW(Sheet1!F$5:F$65)-ROW(Sheet1!F$4))/(Sheet1!L$5:L$65>=ROWS(A$1:A1)),1))

    This is a great solution, but I noticed it stopped producing labels as soon as there was a blank cell in sheet 1. I think erring on the side of caution with the helper column makes it more foolproof.

    Thanks!
