Hi,

I am creating a spread sheet with a large amount of data.

In column a I have a list of managers, in B I have a list of employees and C, I have a list of activities that have been recorded throughout the day.

What I want to do is create a list (on a new sheet) so in column A that would bring back all the managers. Then in column B, bring back the employee that is tied to the manager from column A and finally in column C, bring back the activity that is tied to the employee.

I know how I can do this by doing list validation with INDIRECT, but with the large amount of data that I have this would take forever in a day.

Is there an easier and quicker way to do this?

Thanks in advance.

Kristofer,

A macro may be able to solve your request.

What version of Excel and Windows are you using?

Can you post a screenshot of the raw data worksheet, and, post a screenshot of the worksheet results (manually formatted by you) that you are looking for?

To post your data, you can download and install one of the following two programs:
Excel Jeanie
MrExcel HTML Maker

Or, when using Internet Explorer, just put borders around your data in Excel and copy those cells into your post.

If you are not able to give us screenshots:
