I can't
Excelchat Expert 22/08/2018 - 07:39
is it possible to illustrate some dummy data in the preview sheet on the right?
Excelchat Expert 22/08/2018 - 07:41
So Column A is Item and B is sub-item, is my understanding right?
User 22/08/2018 - 07:42
So I have Section 1, with subsections 1a,1b,1c and so on, in column G I have letters, I would like Rows 14-21 to show sub items only if N of O is used
User 22/08/2018 - 07:43
in order at the bottom if N or O is used
Excelchat Expert 22/08/2018 - 07:44
Where should the N or O be used?
Excelchat Expert 22/08/2018 - 07:44
Please insert the answer that should appear in row 14 to 21 in this example for me to get an idea.
Excelchat Expert 22/08/2018 - 07:46
Are you saying you want only those sub-sections which indicates N or O in Column G?
Excelchat Expert 22/08/2018 - 07:47
ok...got you.
Excelchat Expert 22/08/2018 - 07:47
Let me build the formula. This will be an array formula.
User 22/08/2018 - 07:47
No sub item at the bottom if y is used
User 22/08/2018 - 07:47
Thank you so much
Excelchat Expert 22/08/2018 - 07:48
Yep
Excelchat Expert 22/08/2018 - 07:55
Its taking a little longer to process array formula. Please do extend the time when it prompts.
User 22/08/2018 - 07:55
done
User 22/08/2018 - 08:06
Going to be much longer?
