    Extract by date (2003)

    Hi Loungers,

    I have a spreadsheet containing dates (column A) and descriptions of event that occurred on those dates in column B.

    I need to extract details of the events (column) that occurred within selected months based on dates in column A.

    I hope that makes sense - any suggestions?

    You could use Data | Filter | AutoFilter or Data | Filter | Advanced Filter. In both cases, you must have field names in the first row.

    Hans,

    Thanks for the quick reply - I considered the filter options as you suggested, however I would like to extract the information to another sheet in the spreadsheet - I was thinking of a formula that could be used to extract this based on the month selected.

    Any thoughts?

    You can use Advanced Filter to extract data to another worksheet. You must initiate the filter from the destination worksheet.

    (The problem with using a formula is that the number of rows extracted may vary, depending on the month(s) selected)
