Given this table

A B C
Number Sector Name
1 21144 P John
2 21144 P Mark
3 21144 P Bob
4 21144 A Charlie
5 21099 P Mike
6 21099 P Allan
7 21099 A Dave
8

I would like the cell A8 to display all values matching these 2 criteria: number=21144 and Sector=P. A8 should look like "John, Mark, Bob". Any ideas? Thanks!

data is like this
from row 1 to row 7
columns A to C

Number Sector Name
21144 P John
21144 P Mark
21144 P Bob
21144 A Charlie
21099 P Mike
21099 P Allan
21099 A Dave

now try this macros (run only test)

`Sub TEST()Dim r As Range, x As StringDim j As Integer, k As IntegerundoSet r = Range("A1").CurrentRegionj = r.Rows.Countr.AutoFilter field:=2, Criteria1:="P"r.AutoFilter field:=1, Criteria1:=21144For k = 2 To jIf Cells(k, "C").EntireRow.Hidden = False Then x = x & " " & Cells(k, "C")'MsgBox xNext k'MsgBox xx = Right(x, Len(x) - 1)'MsgBox xActiveSheet.AutoFilterMode = FalseRange("A1").End(xlDown).Offset(1, 0) = xEnd Sub`

`Sub undo()Cells(1, "C").End(xlDown).Offset(1, 0).EntireRow.DeleteEnd Sub`

Thanks! However, it doesn't work. Maybe I didn't explain this correctly. The table above is just an example. In fact, it contains hundreds of rows. The workbook itself has two sheets: one contains the raw data as shown above. On the second one, when I enter the number (any number, not just 21144), I want the cell on the right to display all matches as long as the other condition is met. That is, for 21144=true and P=true, display "John, Mark, Bob". Furthermore, the next cell to the right should display "Charlie" as long as 21144=true and A=true. Basically, instead of having 4 rows (or 5, or 100) for the same number, I'd like to have a single row that basically separates data. So, this table I have on sheet2

Number Sector Name
21144 P John
21144 P Mark
21144 P Bob
21144 A Charlie
21099 P Mike
21099 P Allan
21099 A Dave

should look like this on sheet1

Number P A
21144 John Mark Bob Charlie
21099 Mike Allan Dave

without comma between names.

Again, the macro should be able to handle all information contained on sheet2. This sheet is under constant modification (more records are added every day). Also, the macro should run automatically, without the need to manually run it every time I add new data.

Another question: can I use a formula instead of a macro? Thanks!

in your first message you have written

unquote
that is why the macro was given.

had you explained in your fist messagea itself we could have saved time and effort.
ok does not matter.

http://speedy.sh/wTF7m/drew-130929.xlsm

in sheet1 is the data (NO BLANK ROWS OR BLANK COLUMNS )
right click sheet2(repeat sheet2) and click view code and in the window comes up copy the code given below (I have already done this in the downloadable file)
if you do it in some other file save it after copying the event code

the event code is also repeated here.

`Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)Dim r As Range, x As StringDim j As Integer, k As Integer'undoIf Target.Column > 3 Then Exit SubOn Error GoTo eventsApplication.EnableEvents = FalseWith Worksheets("sheet1")Set r = .Range("A1").CurrentRegionj = r.Rows.Countr.AutoFilter field:=2, Criteria1:=Targetr.AutoFilter field:=1, Criteria1:=Target.Offset(0, -1)For k = 2 To jIf .Cells(k, "C").EntireRow.Hidden = False Then x = x & " " & .Cells(k, "C")'MsgBox xNext k'MsgBox xx = Right(x, Len(x) - 1)'MsgBox x.AutoFilterMode = FalseEnd WithTarget.Offset(0, 1) = x'Range("A1").End(xlDown).Offset(1, 0) = xevents:Application.EnableEvents = TrueEnd Sub`
now go to sheet2 repeat sheet2 and type the NUMBER in column A and SECTOR in column B (note this carefully) and see what happens in column C. I have already given two eXampleS of what happens to C when A1 B1 entered or A2 B2.
you can enter in row 3 or later

CONFIRM WHETHER THIS SERVES YOUR PURPOSE. you can modify the event code if necessary.
