extracting data from Multiple tabs into a table by matching text in column


New Member
I have 50 odd tabs (labels by weekly date range (1st -7th etc) with data in unheaded columns adjacant to a text column on the left hand side, which is the same on each tab. Withing each text column (V) on each tab
, the word plums could be written. I want to pull into a table all the correspondind data in the 6 columns to the left of the text field (V) from each row, in each tab, that contains the word plums.

One way you could do it is to use a free tool called "generic Consolidator" to consolidated the data from all 50 tabs to one tab. Then apply an auto-filter to the consolidated data and filter on "plum", or whatever... This assumes that the data from every tab would be less than ~1 Million rows.

Maybe someone know a better way, but if you want to go with this method, these directions will get you started: http://www.iwishexcel.com/authors-favorites/generic-consolidator/
