Hi- I have information of several...
Hi-
I have information of several categories in one spreadsheet, each line of data includes an identifying name for the category. I would like to be able reference the data into several other separate spreadsheets based upon the category to which it is identified, and have each line of data update in the separate spreadsheets as more data is entered into the main spreadsheet. Is there a way to do this and if so can you tell me how?

I AM SORRY - HOWEVER I DO NOT THINK YOU ARE GOING TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM AND I THINK IT WILL BE A WASTE OF TIME WAITING FOR YOU TO UNDERSTAND AND ANSWER THE PROBLEM.
Microsoft Office Technician: The-PC-Guy, Computer Manager replied 2 years ago

I see we are not off to a good start.

I don't think it is unreasonable to ask for an excel file that shows how the data is arranged and how you want it to look.

Without that it would be very difficult to help you, a spreadsheet can have basically anything in it.
