    Extracting Data (2002)

    Hi Loungers - I am preparing a spead sheet for a collegue that contains a number of heading A1= List of Locations, B1 = Names, C1=employment date, D1=review date, plus a few more. I need to be able to extract all data where the locations match into a different worksheet. I have tried advance filters but this will not extract data to a worksheet that is different to where the data is stored. My thought was to setup a list of locations in a new worksheet and use this as the criteria for collecting data where the locations match.

    I hope this makes sense(??) Any thoughts out there?

    A pivot table on a separate sheet, referring to the source data, is the most flexible way to do what you want.

    John, Thanks for the reply. I have tried a pivot table (I'm no expert with these either), I'm not sure how to extract the cell values - summing, averaging etc is ok. I need to extract a list of names, dates etc.

    Perhaps I'm doing something wrong with the pivot table - any thoughts?

    Try putting the List of Locations field in the Page area of the pivot table (in Layout). You can then select a location from the dropdown list in the pivot table; this will filter the table.

    Dean,

    You said: "I need to be able to extract all data where the locations match into a different worksheet. I have tried advance filters but this will not extract data to a worksheet that is different to where the data is stored." But, Advanced Filter allows for that to. You just need to activate Advanced Filter from within the destination sheet.
