hi all,

I think i need some assistance with an Excel VBA script.

Here's what i'm trying to achieve - we employ an ordering system that can export out to an .xlsx file all outstanding orders and all hastening/progression updates for that order. Unfortunately, each update for that demand (of which there can be any number of) is placed into a new row in the export file meaning that each demand can show multiple lines, each with a different progression/update. For our purposes, we need to extract only the most recent update/progression row and have this information placed into an existing outstanding orders spreadsheet.

I have existing VBA code to help me with taking the information and moving it into my existing sheet, however i haven't worked out yet how to whittle down each row so that only the row with the latest progression/update text is present - to make things worse, there will be be a strong likelihood that there are duplicates and lines with no progression present at all.

Here is a very short extract from my export sheet with the first couple of orders:

Hi Sandy,

not exactly, no sorry... if you look, each demand/order is duplicated (triplicated, quadruplicated...) over multiple rows with only the 'created date' and 'progression text' changing.

What i'm looking to do is delete all but the very latest 'progression text' row for each order so that we only have the very latest information to pass to our customer.

E.g. the first item, Nut, p/n: 1383257 has 7 different progression texts, but i'm only interested in the very latest (made on 04-06-2020) information - we'd like to have that replicated for each individual order.

what will be the best is that you post a result from your example using XL2BB !
unfortunately, my corporate restrictions mean i can't install anything like XL2BB.

Ok, so... the table in my first post shows an example of just THREE orders, with its full progression from order placement to latest update. This is done over multiple lines for the same order, each new row containing an updated Progression Text with date/time updated ('Created Date').

I need to take that table, and some how reduce it so that only the newest information (most recent 'Created Date') is kept for each order, and then all other lines are deleted.... therefore, the table in my first post would look like this (below) when all unnecessary lines are removed.
