I have a large set of data (40k entries). The columns include Account ID, Associate, Order Description, Date and Time. There are several Account IDs. Each is linked to one Associate. However, the Associates have various Account IDs to service. I need to generate a report/export data/filter out all the entries that have given criteria. The tricky thing is my criteria list is also rather long. I have about 100 total possible conditions, so I need all entries that have a given Order Description AND a specific order date. There are 100 totals sets of criteria. What would you advise would help me do this? How do I filter with many conditional filters? It isn't as simple as clicking the filters I want from each column because 1. the column value must also go with another column value and 2. There are so many possibilities. Ie. I don't want to generate a list of all orders with Order Description - blueberries, oranges, apples, etc. I want to generate a list of all orders with Order Description blueberries on March 1, 2016, oranges on April 3, 2017, oranges January 5,2017, apples March 10,2017.

I have a list of names in Column A and a list of telephone numbers in Column B. The are both on the same spreadsheet "NAMES & NUMBERS". On a different spreadsheet, within the same workbook, I would like to have a drop down where I can choose the name in A1 and it will automatically populate A2 with the corresponding telephone number for that particular person. I have searched for 2 hours on the web trying to find out how to do this. Please help!

This Feature Billing spreadsheet is something we use at our company for quoting our clients. We build custom software, and clients typically have very similar feature requests. The New Quote Tab is where a sales person would work. As they talk to the client, the put an "x" in the Selection column (Column H). This generates a price. With that said, each of those selections maps to another set of requirements that we want to communicate with our developers. The "Base-Components-With-Subtasks" tab represents the start of listing out the subtasks. If the sales person puts in X in row 2 of the New Quote tab, our developers need to know to build rows 2-5 of on the "Base-Components-With-Subtasks" tab. The output of this is supposed to be on the "Populated Story Map Tab." Currently I have it so it lists out all the items (and only those items) that are being selected from the New Quote tab, which is a great first step. But I also need it to list out all of the sub-tasks (in individual rows) that the selection maps to on the Base-Components-With-Subtasks. For example, on the Populated Story Map tab, there should be 4 rows for story 1.
