You have 3 columns you want to extract data from. How many rows of data need

to be searched and approximately how many rows of results do you expect to

be extracted?

The formula to do this isn't that complicated but it is calculation

intensive on large amounts of data. If you have 1000's of rows of data using

a formula may not be the best way to go.

Hi,

I understand about the filter not being a formula.

Just how complicated would the formula approach be?

As the data changes quite regularly, this would be the preferred method,

if at all possible.

Hi,

the Advanced Filter command is not a formula, so the second sheet will

not

update automatically. You can rerun the filter command when the data

changes

or you can record a macro that reruns the command for you.

If you need it to have a formula approach, its going to be fairly

complicated, so hopefully you can live with the above solution.

Just a point:

When data in sheet 1 changes from In to Out (or vice versa), how can the

filtered results on sheet 2 be similarly updated automatically?

Hi,

Suppose the heading of columns 1,2 and 4 on sheet 1 are A,B and C.

Please

perform the following steps

1. Assign a column heading to all the columns in sheet 1, if not

already

done so. Say the heading are A-M

2. Now type A in a cell below the data, say A25

3. In cell A26, type Out

4. In sheet 2, type A,B and D in B3,C3 and D3.

5. Now click on cell B4 on sheet 2 and go to Data > Filter > Advance

Filter;

6. Select the radio button for "Copy to another location";

7. In the list box, please select the range on sheet 1 (Please select

the

header row as well);

8. In the Criteria box, select the range A25:A26 of sheet 1;

9. In the copy to box, select B3:D100 of sheet 2;

10. Click on OK

Hope this helps.

I wish to filter results from one sheet onto a second sheet.

I have a data table containing 13 columns, but only columns 1,2 & 4

are

needed in the filtered results.

Column 1 contains either "In" or "Out". Col.2 a name, Col.4 a

location.

I wish to place on sheet 2 all records shown as "Out".

I've tried the VLOOKUP but guess I'm not getting the right

parameters.

Help appreciated.

Thanks.

PS - I'm working with Excel 2007, but the workbook has to be

compatible

with 2003.
