I have a list of about 130 items and new things get added to the list every day. Of particular interest to me are items containing the indicator 'TR'. These are work items identifed by TR followed by a number (e.g. TR245, TR1281, etc.)

I need a solution to maintain a list of TRs on another tab. This way, I can run some lookups to see if a new TR is already on the list or not.

Press Ctrl+` to show all formulas. Press it again to toggle back to numbers. The grave accent is often under the tilde on US keyboards.

Tabs and lookups sound like Excel terms, but this question is in the Access forum. Just to confirm, are you trying to do this in Access or Excel?

AH! No wonder I wasn't seeing a huge response thanks - not sure how this happened. User error, i'm sure.

Cheers!

I'll move it to the Excel forum for you.
