If you want to do this dynamically, so that the sub-list updates
automatically from the main list (as is suggested by your mentioning
the VLOOKUP() function), the problem is complicated, I think. But if
you are prepared to extract the sub-list manually, so that you would
need to repeat the process each time you needed an updated sub-list
from a modified main list, you can do this fairly easily using the
Yes i know that's as clear as mud so i've attached a example
spreadsheet. The column starting at B14 has membership type with
(C14) a name next to it - the actual sheet has more data. Each row
below has different membership type and associated data. I want new
lists based on the membership type. The main list may be sorted
changing the order of the rows.
o Select all the main list range: all the relevant columns and rows.
o Go to Data | Sort... .
o On the Options tab, tick "Range contains column labels" or not - as
o On the Sort Criteria tab, for "Sort by", select your membership type column.
o Now select each sub-list range in turn and copy and paste the rows
to form your new lists.
Since you say the order of entries in the original list does not need
to be fixed, it would be possible to omit the final copying stage and
use the sorted material in place. This would simplify what you need
to do as the original list is edited: you would need just to repeat
the sort, without the subsequent copying.
I trust this helps.
