# Re: [libreoffice-users] Calc, selecting from a list ? vlookup maybe ?

```Hi Graham,

I experimented a little and found the following solution for you:

In col G I put the following formula:
=IFNA(VLOOKUP(\$G\$13,INDIRECT("B"&(14+E13)&":C\$40"), 2, 0),"")

In col E I put:
=MATCH(G14,INDIRECT("\$C"&14+E13):\$C\$39,0)+E13

To get rid of the #N/A in col E I added col F with:
=IF(ISNUMBER(E14),E14,"")

Pull down to row 39

Now hide col E

How does it work:
I build the starting address for the lookup array from the first row with data (in your case row
14, and I add the increment where the name was found. Doing that makes that each vlookup starts
after the row where the last name was found.

In column E I determine the relative place where the name was found (starting at row 14). Also
there I calculate the starting point from what we did before by adding the previous increment to
row 14 to determine teh start row. If we don't do that we'll end up in a loop when a name appears
more then once (e.g. Becky fo N/M).

I'll append the file, knowing that it will not appear in the list, but you'll receive it in your
personal mail.

If people want to see the file, I'LL need some advice on how to get it to nabble...

This is how it looks now (hope that the list doen't mess it up):

C/M

N/M

M
1       C/M     Darren
1       Darren
2       Barbara

If i have a list over a number of columns how would i create a new list of
only certain rows from that list
Yes i know thats 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

Anyone know how i can do  this
