I need to created a flat database which isn't too difficult in excel. But my boss decided to add the condition of being able to look at each record of the database (ie each person's info) seperated by pages. Is there any way of accomplishing this.? I told him that we needed a database program most likely filemaker (we use macs) but he is adamant about using excel probably becuase it's all that he knows. I'm just starting this job and I really don't know how to do what he is asking of me, and I don't want to him to view me as incompetent. Is there any way of viewing the same data in two ways and being able to print it in excel?

Thanks

VLOOKUP to Left?
Use =VLOOKUP(A2,CHOOSE({1,2},$Z$1:$Z$99,$Y$1:$Y$99),2,False) to lookup Y values to left of Z values.

Read help on Pivot Tables. I think that should do what you want.

I agree. Simply use each person for a page in your PT.

NOTE: Your boss will think you're a genius. Tell him you worked on it for hours, though in reality probably only 15 minutes
