A properly designed database would make more sense for storing the data you
describe. It would be much simpler to obtain any needed summary data. If you
want to use Excel, you need to ask this question in a discussion group for
Excel. This is a .NET programming group.
To find the group you need:
As you appear to be using a web interface, start here: http://www.microsoft.com/communities...s/default.aspx
In the tree on the left, first open the English category, then open Office
and Desktop Applications. In Office and Desktop Applications, find and open
the Excel category. There, you'll find a group for your question.
