Hi All,

Looking for some help if possible.
I have a report I need to run manually in excel each day, and I am looking for some assistance in automating it. This is basically a raw data dump from an incident logging tool, and I want it to extract the data from some cells, and place it into my format on the other tab. Our reporting tool won’t produce the correct results, as its crystal reporting. </SPAN></SPAN>

Basically I have 2 tabs</SPAN></SPAN>

Tab 1 has columns A – N and this never changes</SPAN></SPAN>
It can have a varied amount of rows each time depending on how much data is pasted into the 2nd tab. </SPAN></SPAN>

Tab 2 has columns A – X and this also never changes. What I would like to do is to have the data in tab 2, displayed withing certain cells in Tab1, I would then like the sort these by Column D (Severity 1, Severity 2) and then sort by column A (Date / Time logged) </SPAN></SPAN>

Further down the rows, I then have a similar table with columns A – N, which also copies over the data, but they are going to be filtered to this part of the Spreadsheet by keywords. </SPAN></SPAN>

My only issue here is that on this weeks report, I am using 9 rows, and next week I may be using 18, so can the excel document add more rows automatically?</SPAN></SPAN>

Would anyone be able to assist? As I can use this as a template for my report each week by just pasting the data into my spreadsheet. </SPAN></SPAN>

I am unable to add the spreadsheet due to work restrictions, but I can email it to someone if they are able to assist me?

Thanks in advance

Colin
