10, This is going to be a fairly large file. Is there a formula that can be used instead? Would a macro interrupt the other sheets?

the list is not fixed because we could lose or gain a worker at anytime

Excelchat Expert

Excelchat Expert
04/12/2017 - 09:27

then we paste it where we want it

Excelchat Expert
04/12/2017 - 09:27

then we create a button and assign the macro to it

also, we can use a formula with some criteria to vlookup the list
