As an input, I have a raw data file with a myriad of fields. My business partner needs an output that filters down the results based on a specific field criteria. Our goal is to automat the output in contrast to applying filters and copy and pasting the filtered results.
Additionally, one of the fields is date and we need to return only records with dates <= 45 days ago.

Additionally, the partner needs several of the fields from the raw data dump scrubbed in the final output. Any ideas are appreciated. My initial thought is to use some kind of macro, but my knowledge of writing excel macros is limited (3 skill level on 1 to 10 scale).
