Hi Guys,

i am pulling info from a database into excel using Query. I want to use a list as a criteria.

EG

Criteria Field Name
Value =bob
0r =mark
=x
=y
=z

well i have a list of names in excel that i want to use to populate the bob, mark, x, y, z etc part.

Is it possible??

Kind regards

mark

Format cells as date
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+3 to format cells as date. (Shift 3 is the # sign which sort of looks like a small calendar).

you need to use an IN statement, like this:

NAME in ("bob","mark","x","y","z")

You would need to set up a parameter query if your conditions are within Excel.
