there as well but the wikisend server seems to be down at this time. I'll have to send it Monday morning.
The Inventory tab contains the information that is the source for the Letter tab. There will be mulitple inventory tabs with random data (not sorted) and I need to find various inventory items that will be scattered throughout each tab.
The Inventory tab contains the information that is the source for the Letter tab. There will be mulitple inventory tabs with random data (not sorted) and I need to find various inventory items that will be scattered throughout each tab. There could be multiple matchs or only one depending upon the tab being searched.
As long as the solution is flexible enough to add other columns of data from the item match, I should be able to work iwth it. I will be working with up to 1000 tabs of data so any manual intervention in the process wiill be time consuming. My objective is to make this as automated as possible.
I will have a master sheet with tab names. Those tabs will increase over time but there will be a reference tab that will be updated with current sheet names.
Sorry for the confusion. I have a master sheet with all of the tab names to keep track of the data. The solution I am looking for is to have a single sheet pull the selected items from any selected tab. I have used VLOOKUP in the past but I'm having a problem when there are multiple matches with the same Item name. I need to capture each unique line with the serial number of the item wehen there could be 1 to 5 item matches and place them into a list as per the original example.
I only need to refer to one sheet at a time to produce a list. I can manage switch sheets but not handling multiple matches on the same sheet.
Does that help?
I’m a moderator for this topic. It seems the Professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
I'm still looking for an answer so please keep searching. As I continue to research the solutions, it seems that a VBA expert may be the correct alternative.
Thank you for your patience. We will continue the search for a professionals for you.
Thanks for the solution! I ran the solution and it works for the basic search and you have given me a couple of VBA hints to add to my growing knowledge....smile...
