I have 2010 and need formulas to combine the info based

Customer Question

Hi. I have 2010 and need formulas to combine the info based on a source being in the first column. The first column is gong to be a list of unique assignment numbers that are organized based by age of the assignment/oldest on top and newest on bottom. The second column reflects the age of each assignment, oldest on top the third column are unique people's names of who to give the assignments to, the fourth column reflects the number of assignments to give each of the people from column three. The trick is, most of the people from column three will be receiving a different number of assignments, and I need to make the assignment rotations based on oldest first down to the newest, with each rotation eliminating the people who should receive less and not part of that rotation. I am looking for a formula, pivot or macro to do this, because I could have as many as 800 unique assignment numbers ranging from 100 days old down to a day old and upwards of 40 people to receive as many as 12 assignments, down to two, all based on aging assigned first. Thank you

Please let me know if you need any more details, thanks

Hi, welcome and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am glad to assist you today.Can you please send me a dummy or sample of your Excel file so that I can directly check your required formula? You can attach it here when you reply, or you can upload it to http://filesXpress.com and then give me the short download link.Thank you.Best regards,Jess

I don't have a sample to provide you, just a hypothetical description. Fist column will be 120 unique combination of numbers, which represent assignment numbers, second col is the age of those numbers/assignments(both 1st and 2nd columns are sorted by aged with oldest numbers on top in col 1, highest number of days old on top if col 2, which represents days old. The third col will be the people who will receive assignments. The fourth col will be how many assignments by age, each person in col 3 will receive, I may assign some people the same amount and others less, adding to the 120 total assignment numbers in the first col. Col 1 is titled assign number, col 2 is titled days aged, col 3 is name, com 4 is number to name. Really the fourth column is not needed, if a macro is made to assignor the numbers in order of age, and how many to which person...all people being assigned by age, so everyone gets equal aging, etc. thanks

Hi hi yes I am trying to automate the assignments to each person's name according by aging and according to the number they are should receive, the columns can be moved around or changed if that helps you come to a solution. Thanks

Smaller portion simple Example: if I have only five people receiving assignments and there are only 25 assignments(individual numbers) that are arranged by aging, then I need the formula to have all five people receive five cycles going down the list, not one name five times at the top then the name five times down. But names 1-5 at top, then names 1-5 Continue to go down. ( in my situation, the cycles going down would change bases upon the number of people left reviving assignments in the different cycles as they go down the assignment number list, thanks

Hi, I am sorry but I will not be able to help you with this. I will opt out so that my fellow experts can assist you further. You will be notified through email when someone joins you here. Thank you. Regards, Jess

hi, I would like to be able to help with this, but it is rather difficult without a visual example of what you are trying to achieve. I assume in wouldn't be too difficult to put together an example, 1 sheet having example data, and a second sheet showing what you would like the output to look like. This would be very helpful in determining what is needed.

Did this come through to you from the past helper? :::I don't have a sample to provide you, just a hypothetical description.

If you can work with what I told you, let me see if I can make a dummy

that is coming through on my end as all text, and I can't make sens of it. Can you send the actual file to www.wikisend.com after uploading they give you an ID#paste the ID# *****

I emailed it to my phone and only have my phone now, so all I can do is forward to an email. I don't have the file downloaded, in order to use wiki. If you give me an email, I'll forward thanks

It would really only take you 5 mins to make a column with let's say 12 unique numbers, next col various days aging oldest on top, next col, 3 people , next col first person to receive 5 cases, next 4, next 3, them develop a formula on the gory cold to assign by aging, where 1st person would be in all 5 rotations, the last person eliminated after 3 rotations and the middle after 4 rotations by aging. I could just them apply the formula to larger numbers, because regardless of column size it will be based on the content of the 4 cold. Can you do that?

ok, I got the file, so you want to take the values from column A and B and add the names in column C in order, with 1 name going to each number in column A. And then repeat the names until all of the numbers in column A have a name assigned to them?

I have all the preceding descriptions. But here we go. All the people in col c should receive the assignments from col a, which are arranged by their age, represented in col b. ,col d represents the number of assignments each person should receive. All assignment rotations should be in order of oldest first, essentially plugging in the list of names down the aging list and dropping each person off the rotations as you go down, once they have reached their assign limit. Thanks

Yes, however oldest first, so instead of giving them their individual assignments in a row down the list, they would be part of a rotation with the others, all with equal amounts of aged assignments going down the list in col a

Look at results tab of spread for idea, thx

I need a formula or macro that I can continuously plug in when I assign in future dates, using a constant set up format

like, i said the only thing that will work is a macro. There is no sufficient formula or pivot that will accomplish what you want. I can knock $25 off the price if budget is really tight

i think I finally understand what you want to do, but there is no formula or pivot that can do it. I can knock $25 off the price if budget is really tight

If you can knock off the$25 plus arrange the $42 the last guy auto charged my card, to only tell me he can't help me, then I'll do it. Whet can customer service do about that last charge? Thanks

I am just following up with you to see if you are still interested in doing this, You did not accept the additional service, and I did not hear back from you. Should I assume you are no longer interested in this?
