    I track my teams performance in a number of ways. One report seperates the time they spend into about 8 different categories. Not every team member will have time in every category. Therefore, the report will not always look exactly the same. Once a person has any time in a category, it is permanently included in the report. My quandry is when one of the people spend time in a new category. A simple function pointing to the same reference is no godd in these cases. Therefore, I am trying to find a way for Excel to search for a name, then look for the first instance of the work "Total" after the name, and then move the same number of columns over to find a percentage I need to paste into my tracker. Is there a way to use the functions that are built into Excel to get this done? Thank you in advance for any help.
