Excel/Data Sort out


Hi Aidan,

Hope this email meets you in perfect health.

Can you please help me analyze how to arrange my data. First
I exported a csv format to excel which works fine. However, I'm confused how to arrange it.

What i really wanted is to let excel do the calculation for all exported file on the other sheet (same excel file).

Currently, I sum up all emails for Name A and all telefon for Name A. Is there a way to let excel look all the range and return all emails and telefon for Name A? Name B and Name C?

Hoping for your good insights.


It looks as though you need to use a pivot table - this would summarise all the data easily - you didn't specify the version of excel, so it's hard to give specifics as to how to do this, but I'm more than happy to talk you through it - if it helps, you can mail me a sample file and I can give you instructions specific to your data - my email if it helps is aidan.heritage@virgin.net

I'm educated to UK A level standard, but as I left school some 30 years ago that is rather irrelevent - university of life has provided more of a background!
