    Copy column, remove blanks and alphabetize

    I need to create a unique list of values from a column on one page and copy that to another page. Right now I'm using this code that I found online, and it's working perfectly:

    However, there are some values that I want to filter (empty spaces "", general names like "Staff", and so-on). I tried using something like:

    Please Login or Register  to view this content.
    but it gives me an error. This makes sense I suppose since the copy command seems to be a direct command instead of a loop (I'm not used to a range being designated as "F:F"... I assume that means the entire column where values are present?). I tried filtering the column with a loop, but I kept getting errors. Also, as mentioned above, I also need to alphabetize the list once it's created on the second sheet. Any help would be appreciated!

    It is always easier to help and test possible solutions if we could work with your actual file. Could you attach a copy? Be specific as to how you want to filter the values.
    You can say "THANK YOU" for help received by clicking the Star symbol at the bottom left of the helper's post.
    Practice makes perfect. I'm very far from perfect so I'm still practising.

    The file is a bit complex layout-wise and operationally. What is the best way to proceed?

    F:F can be qualified as a range but it is Column F from F1 to F1,048,576. Maybe a couple more cells than needed.
    After you have that problem sussed, read Post #2 again and act accordingly for easier/possible faster help

    Thanks! I was actually asking how best to upload the file and direct the person to where the code is and what events trigger the code. This workbook has about 10 sheets with VBA on several, as well as two modules and code in the workbook section, as well.

    I ended up using the following code to sort each column of data created:

    I'm starting to get a really good understanding of using the "cells" function so I can do loops (finally!). So... I've created lists, they're sorted, and to eliminate blanks when loading them into my combobox I use the following code:

    So... I'm slowly getting it figured out. Also, I use the code:

    To keep blanks from loading in my list. What would be the easiest way to add other items that I can exclude?
