    Re: IF , VLOOK formula help

    Try this method:

    In A6 of Sheet1 enter formula:

    =IF(B6<>"",1,A5+1)

    copied down as far as your column B data validation goes. This serves as a counter. You can hide the column if you wish.

    Then in C6:

    Confirmed with CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER not just ENTER and copied down same distance.

    In D6:

    Please Login or Register  to view this content.
    copied down.

    Now make a selection in B6, you should have results.

    After the last result, make another selection in column B, the corresponding results should appear, then go to bottom and make another selection in B, and so on...

    when you are clearing for new entries, make sure to only delete entries made in column B

    Thanks, it worked like magic, I only made a small change in D6 formula to start from $B$3 rather than $B$15 to include all data

    Re: IF , VLOOK formula help, Sorting , Filtering and copying rows

    Master Production Plan 1.2 t.xlsm
    Hi NBVC,
    I have used your formulas to create the attached schedule, it worked like a charm , the issue I am facing now is the filtering and sorting of information, when I select a name from the Manpower drop list and sort the schedule by the start date it through the schedule out of whack and information goes out of order, what I am trying to do is print out a schedule for individual manpower and filtered by the start date rather than the ship date
    I am thinking of creating another book that pulls and filter the information and segregate them by months each tab on the new book for one of the names on the manpower list and flitted by the Start date not the ship date
    the size of the original schedule is more than 10,000 rows, had to reduce it to be able to attach it
    Please let me know if I missed anything
    Thank you for your help and support
    Cheers,
    AI

    Re: IF , VLOOK formula help

    The formulas I gave are dependent of production descriptions in column G, and the selections for each group being made at top.... the way to avoid that problem is to have every cell in column G have a selection made.. (no blanks).
