Resolved Question:

We have a similar need for this next one. We want to sort the rows by matching Column A to Column C and but keep them aligned so there's blanks in Column C where they don't match. We also need to keep rows in Column A & Column B aligned during this process.

So what exactly are we doing here?
Customer: replied 9 months ago.

We want the rows in Columns A & B to stay aligned and want Column C sorted to match duplicates in Column A

Expert:  The-PC-Guy replied 8 months ago.
sorry, I am still not following.

We want to match column C to Column A and put the duplicates in Column D?

Then sort by column D?

or do we want to sort all 3 columns but where everything in a row stays together.

Or did you just want to sort column C? but not sort A and B?

Please explain
Customer: replied 8 months ago.

OK, let me start over. Columns A & B (ESS SKU and Qty) are married. They have to remain aligned. We want to sort Column C so it matches duplicates in Column A. There are more values in Column A than C.

Expert:  The-PC-Guy replied 8 months ago.
so

inotherwords you want to take whatever values are in column C and redistribute them so they match column As values leaving blank lines in between.

Did I understand this correctly?
Customer: replied 8 months ago.

Correct

Expert:  The-PC-Guy replied 8 months ago.
Column D now contains the matches.

let me know if you have any other problems.
