The overall problem. I would like to be able to manage my Projects Resources in Excel. Yet people like to see the task information in MS Project so I want to be able to move information back and forth.

This is fine, I paste the MS Project columns I want into one worksheet and then use the ID to VLOOKUP the information I need when I want to. HOWEVER I have hit a snag.

I want the ability to add a %, per resource, per task, per week.

e.g. Week 1, Resource 1, Task 1, 50%
Week 1, Resource 1, Task 2, 50%

As soon as I add this layer of complexitiy I become stumped and have to do a lot of manual work (ugggh) that will be difficult to maintain accuately.

Any idea how I can store and retrieve this information?

Does the VLOOKUP table have to be sorted?
No! when you are using an exact match, the VLOOKUP table can be in any order. Best-selling items at the top is actually the best.
