Excel/VBA extrapolate and sort

Question
QUESTION: Hi Tom.
Excel 2003 VBA solution

In Sheet1 I have three columns. Column A1:A125 contains names. Column B1:B125 contains numbers between 1 and 100, same for column C1:C125. These three columns must not change.

I need to extrapolate the names based on a sort. If a value in Column B is between 70 and 75 AND if column C values are between 10 and 30 then starting in column D1 list the names where the two conditions are true with no blank spaces.

Thank you for your consideration.

ANSWER: dave

Sub abc()
Dim v As Variant, rw As Long, i As Long

v = Range("A1:C125").Resize(125, 3)
rw = 1
For i = 1 To 125
 If v(i, 2) >= 70 And v(i, 2) <= 75 And _
    v(i, 3) >= 10 And v(i, 3) <= 30 Then
   Cells(rw, "D").Value = v(i, 1)
   rw = rw + 1
 End If
Next
End Sub


worked for me if I understand the requirement.

QUESTION: Hi Tom,

Macro works perfectly. I need one adjustment.

When the results are placed in column D, I need them to be sorted by their column B values and secondarily by their column C values. Currently, the results placed in column D appear in alphabetical order as they are originally.

Answer
Dave,

I assume columns E and F are available to write the values form B and C so I can sort the results.  I then clear data in columns E and F.  [if that is a problem, I can insert two new columns E and F instead and remove them after the sort]

Sub abc()
Dim v As Variant, rw As Long, i As Long
Dim r As Range

v = Range("A1:C125").Resize(125, 3)
rw = 1
For i = 1 To 125
 If v(i, 2) >= 70 And v(i, 2) <= 75 And _
    v(i, 3) >= 10 And v(i, 3) <= 30 Then
   Cells(rw, "D").Value = v(i, 1)
   Cells(rw, "E").Value = v(i, 2)
   Cells(rw, "F").Value = v(i, 3)
   rw = rw + 1
 End If
Next
Set r = Range(Cells(1, "D"), Cells(rw - 1, "F"))
r.Sort Key1:=Cells(1, "E"), order1:=xlAscending, _
      Key2:=Cells(1, "F"), order1:=xlAscending, _
      Header:=xlNo
r.Offset(0, 1).Resize(, 2).ClearContents

End Sub
