I am looking to return a list of data based on an amount of times a value is returned in a column. I then am looking to return that in a different tab. So if a person's name is in Column C of Full List tab, then return a list of names that are also in Column A of Full List tab. Display this in List per CM tab in rows 5 and below. The person's name will be listed in row 2 of List per CM Tab.

Hi, we have a file that has five separate columns that need to combined in one cell. They are each separate bullet points. We tried a formula but that all ended up being one long line of a few sentences. We want every single bullet point which is in a different column to be on a new line once we combine them with a formula. We did try to us enter in the formula but it didn't help. Please Advise Thanks

Hi. This is quite hard to explain but hopefully the document will help! I have a s/sheet looking at a five year replacement plan for their PCs. I have a list of Locations (Labs) in a uni that contains the number of machines, how much it will cost to replace and a year that (1-5). At the moment they were populated manually. But if they decide they want to change, for example Lab B from the first year to the 3rd, it then needs to be done manually. What I'd like to be able to do, is, if the year is changed in column E, then the boxes / fields to the right get updated. I know I can do this with multiple pivot tables, but know that it could also be done with formulas. In G5 for Year 1, I have used the Index and Match functions to return Lab B. I'm guessing I might need OFFSET, (which I don't know much about as yet) but before I went ahead and researched it all, thought I would ask. Current formula (in G5) here is: =INDEX(\$B:\$B,MATCH(1,\$E:\$E,0)) Thank you.
