How can I have Excel return a list of job assignments based on a particular location?

Employees assigned to a particular airport in Texas have to do research in all the adjacent counties to that airport (there are over 250 counties in Texas). For example lets say Jack is assigned to do work for DFW and IAH and Jill is assigned to do work at ACT, SAT, and CLL. There are too many adjacent counties to list in this example but obviously the adjacent counties will never change but the employee assigned to the airport will.

It goes without saying that the number of counties will be different for each employee and sometimes they might trade airports so the list could potentially be pretty dynamic. I'm assuming there will have to be some sort of lookup sheet/command. Also, one "lucky" engineer will be assigned to all of the counties that are outside of all the other adjacent counties. If work gets too much and other engineers have time to help, those engineers can divide counties by a particular region. For example, **** could take all the East and West counties and Jane takes the central.

The information I'd like to list is:
Column A: Employee Name
Column B: County
Column C: Region (East, West, Central)

I'd like the list to be sorted primarily by employee names (in alphabetical order) and then secondarily by the county name.

Thanks in advance for your help in solving this challenge. I can provide a list of counties and their regions if that helps.

Is there a shortcut key for strikethrough?
Ctrl+S is used for Save. Ctrl+5 is used for Strikethrough. Why Ctrl+5? When you use hashmarks to count |||| is 4, strike through to mean 5.
