I have one long list of tasks in an excel sheet with columns for task, date due, project & priority etc. I have macro buttons to sort by each column and generally it works well and is simple but I would like to be able to view it in a similar way to this: https://teuxdeux.com/ or Trello ie, have a row of consecutive dates and then the tasks for that day listed below the dates so you can get an 'at a glance' look at the week.

I was thinking a vlookup may work but seems a bit clunky, is there a simpler way?

Thank you!

Hi & welcome to MrExcel.
I think you'll struggle to find anything "simpler" than a Vlookup.

Without any idea of what your data looks like, or exactly how you want to display it, it's difficult to tell.
Can you post a small sample of your data & what you want as an end result?
There are some add-ins available here that enable you to post data to the board. https://www.mrexcel.com/forum/about-board/508133-attachments.html

Re: Help - how do I automatically populate lists from master list/ Create Teux Deux or Trello Style lists

I am currently on a mac (although trying to do this on a work Windows computer) and can't get the add ins to work but these are my two sheets.

The first is my list which is where I update the data
The second I want to just extract automatically from the list and show it in columns

<colgroup><col width="87" span="3" style="width: 65pt;"><col width="375" style="width: 281pt;"><col width="87" span="2" style="width: 65pt;"></colgroup><tbody>
</tbody>

Thanks for your help

Ok, as you have multiple matches Vlookup won't work.
Try
<b></b><table cellpadding="2.5px" rules="all" style=";background-color: rgb(255,255,255);border: 1px solid;border-collapse: collapse; border-color: rgb(187,187,187)"><colgroup><col width="25px" style="background-color: rgb(218,231,245)" /><col /><col /><col /><col /><col /><col /></colgroup><thead><tr style=" background-color: rgb(218,231,245);text-align: center;color: rgb(22,17,32)"><th></th><th>A</th><th>B</th><th>C</th><th>D</th><th>E</th><th>F</th></tr></thead><tbody><tr ><td style="color: rgb(22,17,32);text-align: center;">2</td><td style="text-align: right;;">19/08/2019</td><td style="text-align: right;;">20/08/2019</td><td style="text-align: right;;">21/08/2019</td><td style="text-align: right;;">22/08/2019</td><td style="text-align: right;;">23/08/2019</td><td style="text-align: right;;">24/08/2019</td></tr><tr ><td style="color: rgb(22,17,32);text-align: center;">3</td><td style=";"></td><td style=";"></td><td style=";">Task1</td><td style=";">Task2</td><td style=";">Task7</td><td style=";">Task9</td></tr><tr ><td style="color: rgb(22,17,32);text-align: center;">4</td><td style=";"></td><td style=";"></td><td style=";"></td><td style=";">Task3</td><td style=";">Task8</td><td style=";"></td></tr><tr ><td style="color: rgb(22,17,32);text-align: center;">5</td><td style=";"></td><td style=";"></td><td style=";"></td><td style=";">Task4</td><td style=";"></td><td style=";"></td></tr><tr ><td style="color: rgb(22,17,32);text-align: center;">6</td><td style=";"></td><td style=";"></td><td style=";"></td><td style=";">Task5</td><td style=";"></td><td style=";"></td></tr><tr ><td style="color: rgb(22,17,32);text-align: center;">7</td><td style=";"></td><td style=";"></td><td style=";"></td><td style=";">Task6</td><td style=";"></td><td style=";"></td></tr><tr ><td style="color: rgb(22,17,32);text-align: center;">8</td><td style=";"></td><td style=";"></td><td style=";"></td><td style=";"></td><td style=";"></td><td style=";"></td></tr></tbody></table><p style="width:4.8em;font-weight:bold;margin:0;padding:0.2em 0.6em 0.2em 0.5em;border: 1px solid rgb(187,187,187);border-top:none;text-align: center;background-color: rgb(218,231,245);color: rgb(22,17,32)">Sheet2</p><br /><br /><table width="85%" cellpadding="2.5px" rules="all" style=";border: 2px solid black;border-collapse:collapse;padding: 0.4em;background-color: rgb(255,255,255)" ><tr><td style="padding:6px" ><b>Worksheet Formulas</b><table cellpadding="2.5px" width="100%" rules="all" style="border: 1px solid;text-align:center;background-color: rgb(255,255,255);border-collapse: collapse; border-color: rgb(187,187,187)"><thead><tr style=" background-color: rgb(218,231,245);color: rgb(22,17,32)"><th width="10px">Cell</th><th style="text-align:left;padding-left:5px;">Formula</th></tr></thead><tbody><tr><th width="10px" style=" background-color: rgb(218,231,245);color: rgb(22,17,32)">A3</th><td style="text-align:left">=IFERROR(<font color="Blue">INDEX(<font color="Red">Sheet1!$D$3:$D$11,AGGREGATE(<font color="Green">15,6,(<font color="Purple">ROW(<font color="Teal">Sheet1!$D$3:$D$11</font>)-ROW(<font color="Teal">Sheet1!$D$3</font>)+1</font>)/(<font color="Purple">Sheet1!$B$3:$B$11=A$2</font>),ROWS(<font color="Purple">$A$1:$A1</font>)</font>)</font>),""</font>)</td></tr></tbody></table></td></tr></table><br />
