Could you please upload a sample file on some shared site like https://authentification.site and post back here the link to allow better understanding of how it is now and how you foresee.

Steve, what is the concept of day. The most efficient way is to move all the data including day. You said that the data needs to go to the row with matching day. Is this just day of month and would be going from 1-31, one row at a time ? In that case the missing dates can be added once the data has been moved. Or is there a problem

Didn't find the answer you are looking for?

Ask a question
Hi rizvisa,

I was looking around and someone suggested the following formula, which works:)

'SUPPORT' Worksheet:

Cell A2: =Sheet1!A2

Cell B2: =IF(LEFT(Sheet1!B2,7)="SUPPORT",Sheet1!B2,"")

Cell C2: =IF(LEFT(Sheet1!B2,7)="SUPPORT",Sheet1!C2,"")

'PACKAGE' Worksheet:

Cell A2: =Sheet1!A2

Cell B2: =IF(LEFT(Sheet1!B2,7)="PACKAGE",Sheet1!B2,"")

Cell C2: =IF(LEFT(Sheet1!B2,7)="PACKAGE",Sheet1!C2,"")

'GENERAL' Worksheet:

Cell A2: =Sheet1!A2

Cell B2: =IF(LEFT(Sheet1!B2,7)="GENERAL",Sheet1!B2,"")

Cell C2: =IF(LEFT(Sheet1!B2,7)="GENERAL",Sheet1!C2,"")

However, the remaining question that noone seems to be able to answer is as follows. How would I have to adjust the formula if I wanted more than one "text" transferred into one worksheet. For example, if I wanted the information regarding "PACKAGE" and "SUPPORT" to go into the worksheet named PACKAGE.

If you could give me a solution, I shall be eternally grateful :D

How ever, I am not too sure if using the formula is the way to go. It can cause grief, during filtration, deleting or moving around rows. Since you know your requirement best, you would know if that is some thing you should be concerned about or not
