Hello, I hope someone can help me. I have some basic knowledge of Excel but am stuck trying to get it to do something via a macro or formula that I currently do manually.

I run a swimming club and I keep all the records in an Excel sheet (Office 2007).

When we do up a program for the kids, it has their past results in it over a particular distance. What I do is use the filter on my sheet to filter the date so I can get results only for the past 12 months, then I specify a distance. Some races are over 50m, some 75m, some 100m, etc as we use a 25m pool for the young ones. So I set a filter on the distance that will give me +50m or -50m from a specified distance (eg: greater than 50m and less than 150m). Then in the name field I use the filter again and enter the kids name. From this result, I take the last 4 rows of data and copy & paste into another worksheet that we use to print out the program.

It all works fine, but it is very time consuming and people have told me that it could be done with a macro or some sort of formula. I only have a basic knowledge of these things and have some formulas in my sheet, but nothing with multiple criteria, etc.

Can this be done? Can I specify the criteria of date, dist range and name and get it to give me the result of last 4 swims into cells on my other sheet? If so, could someone please give me an example of what this sort of formula would look like. I have tried reading an excel manual but it is over my head I'm afraid, but I have been able to use formulas in the past that have been shown to me and change them by adding the correct cell references.

Many thanks if anyone can please help.

Hi Carolyn:

Welcome to MrExcel Board!

I think you would better use AdvancedFilter on your new sheet to extract the information you need ... and to automate the process you can have a macro or a button to initiate execution of AdvancedFilter.

If you want to discuss this further please post back. I would also suggest that you post a few rows of your data, along with the expected results from the posted data so we can see how your data is laid out and what you are trying to accomplish.

Many thanks...........I dont know how to use advanced filter and what I would need to specify in it.

I have attached 2 sheets, showing the way that the data is set out in results sheet and then a similar layout to the way we currently copy & paste for the program. (It wouldnt let me attach files so I have copied and pasted into here....hope that works)

This 1st sheet is a typical race result

I hope this makes some sense. The results are just typical of 1 race. Whate we do is search the database for all of "BOY3" then filter the distance and the date and copy the last 4 race results into the program. We then repeat that process for each of the 8 lanes in each of the races on our swimming program. The copying and pasting takes a lot of time, and as the list of swimmers is already done up in a word document I was hoping to just copy a list of 8 names into 8 cells and have a formula that would take the name in each cell and go do the search, filter, copy and paste into destination cells. I hope I'm not asking for too much.

Many thanks

Carolyn

yes, that's looks right, that is a combination of the data from the race result and also the extra data I added to show the format of the program

Hi Carolyn:

Next, I need to understand the basis (the criteria) for extracting your data ...

1) Lane is to be ... 1
and what else ...
2)
3)
4)
....

In trying to put together the program for the upcoming swim meet, currently what we produce is a page for each race.

The page will have the details up the top......date, distance, age group, etc.

Then we will have the kids in lane order, with their last 4 swims at similar distance under each name.

So, there will be:

LANE 1
BILLY SMITH
(Then there will be the 4 rows of data extracted from the database).

Currently this is all done by filter, search, copy & paste. We go into the database, filter the date column to be äfter" a certain date, filter the distance column by "greater than and less than"to give us 50m range either side of the distance of the upcoming swim. After applying these filters, then we filter the name column with each name, copying and pasting the last 4 rows that meet the above criteria. We then repeat that process for each of the 8 kids in each race. We paste the whole row of data (4 rows) but every column from the database so there is no filtering of which columns of data to copy & paste.

We end up with a page for each race, with each of the 8 kids showing their lane and name as above and 4 rows of data from our database under each name. I dont know how else to explain it.

Hi Carolyn:

You have explained it well and I believe I have understood what you are trying to accomplish. However, it is past midnight here in Michigan, and I am a bit sleepy, so I will get back to it in the morning -- Good Night!

Hi Carolyn:

Referring to the data in Sheet1 of my earlier post, now I am going to execute AdvancedFilter and extract the related data from Sheet1 based on creiteria in cellls L1:M2 ...

<html><head><title>Excel Jeanie HTML</title></head><body>
Excel Workbook
ABCDEFGHIJKLM
1NAMEFINISHLANEDIVAGEDISTPOOLDATETIMEMARGIN*LaneName
2BOY55TH13u10b75mKirwan15/11/200980.36*1Boy5
3Boy55TH13u10b75mKirwan15/11/200980.36***
Sheet2


</body></html>

To enable automatic execution of AdvancedFilter when I change the value in cells L2 or M2, I wrote the following Worksheet_Change event ...
Code:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    If Target = Cells(2, 12) Or Target = Cells(2, 13) Then
        Sheets("Sheet1").Columns("A:J").AdvancedFilter Action:=xlFilterCopy, _
                CriteriaRange:=Range("L1:M2"), CopyToRange:=Range("A1:J1"), Unique:=False
    End If
End Sub

Once this is setup to your satisfaction, all you have to do is change the criterion values and the macro executes the AdvancedFilter automatically ... so depending on your needs, you can use this one sheet, change the values and print the result or modify this to suit your needs.

I hope this helps.

Merry Christmas, Season's Greetings!
