Excel/VBA or index and match
I have a workbook that contains 4 worksheets. The first worksheet “Sheet2rng” contains the data for three year groups in a school: years 7, 8 and 9.
There are three other worksheets: “PON7”, “PON8” and “PON9”
The column headings are broadly the same in all worksheets.
I would like all of the relevant information about year 7, 8 and 9 to populate worksheets “PON7”, “PON8” and “PON9” respectively.
Is there VBA code that can do this? Or, would the most efficient method be with formulas?
Would you object to me sending the workbook to you?
Thanks in advance.
the choice between macro and formulas would depend on what you prefer and what works. You would probably need array formulas if you used formulas and depenending on how many and how many cells they have to address, they can cause calculation to be slow (but if small enough, then the effect is marginal). The advantage is that when you change the Sheet2rng data, they would update.
VBA you would have to run to get your separate sheets. If I wrote the code, then I would write it to clear all the data in a PON sheet and rewrite it.
Also term "broadly the same" is a bit disconcerting.
Also, have you considered using a pivot Table or a filter?
Anyway, you can send me the workbook with whatever information you need to provide.
