Hi all

I have a list of names in a column A and a list of categories Cols B-F

Each person can be tagged to several categories with the value of either 0 1 2 3 or 4

I am after a way to create a separate summary sheet that will tell me the person’s name in one cell (which I can do with =Sheet1!A2 ) and a string of text delimited by commas showing all the categories they have been tagged too regardless of the value used.

Example Table

ABCDEF
12345
Bob032
Peter340
Frank4203

<tbody>
</tbody>

Result:

AB
Bob2,3,5
Peter3,4,5
Frank1,2,3,5

<tbody>
</tbody>


My full list of data has over 150 people and 160 different categories

Any Ideas?

Thanks

In K2 control+shift+enter, not just enter, and copy down:

=TEXTJOIN(",",TRUE,IF(ISNUMBER(B2:F2),$B$1:$F$1,""))

using VBA, puts data on second sheet

Code:
Sub t()
Dim c As Range, i As Long, lc As Long, ssh As Worksheet, sh As Worksheet, cat As String
Set ssh = ActiveSheet
Set sh = Sheets(2) 'Edit sheet name
    With ssh
        For Each c In .Range("A2", .Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp))
            If c <> "" Then
                lc = .Cells(c.Row, Columns.Count).End(xlToLeft).Column
                    For i = 2 To lc
                        If .Cells(c.Row, i) <> "" Then
                            If cat = "" Then
                                cat = .Cells(1, i).Value
                            Else
                                cat = cat & ", " & .Cells(1, i).Value
                            End If
                        End If
                    Next
                sh.Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp)(2) = c.Value
                sh.Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Offset(, 1) = cat
                cat = ""
            End If
        Next
    End With
End Sub

Thanks a lot for your response Aladin, is there a way to have the Summary on another sheet? I tried prefixing the formula with =Sheet1! but it would not work

Thanks JLGWhiz, I liked the VBA option too :)

Cheers

Does the Summary sheet have the names also? If so, where?

The names will be in cell A1, with the text string in cell B1, but I can pull them in using a simple =Sheet1!A2 formula. They need to be in separate cells as hopefully I will be 'Counting' the digits from the cell B1

If this is in Sheet1:

do we have in Summary something like this:

The Summary sheet is correct and the text string will go into Column B

Thanks
