Splitting cells into multiple records


Here is what I am trying to do. I have an access DB that Excels pulls info 
out of and puts in a nice little format. My issue is that some of the fields 
have multiple records in it. Here is an example of the DB:

First Name | Last Name | Issue | Remediation

You would only have one first and last name, but there might be multiple 
instances in the issue and remediation cells.

First Name | Last Name | Issue 
| Remediation

John            |Smith         | Issue Number 1 
| Remediation Number 1

                                       | Issue Number 2 
| Remediation Number 2

                                       | Issue Number 3 
| Remediation Number 3

                                       | Issue Number 4 
| Remediation Number 4

The 4 issues would be in 1 cell and the 4 remediation's would be in 1 cell. 
I want to set up some sort of rule or Micro to split up the Issue and 
Remediation cell into multiple cells, but repeat the first and last name.

First Name | Last Name | Issue 
| Remediation

John           | Smith          | Issue Number 1 
| Remediation Number 1

John           | Smith          | Issue Number 2 
| Remediation Number 2

John           | Smith          | Issue Number 3 
| Remediation Number 3

John           | Smith          | Issue Number 4 
| Remediation Number 4

The information is pulling from a SharePoint list, so it would have to be 
something that would automatically when the spreadsheet is opened.

creating forms with multiple tables
I have Access 2002, I created two tables, one that has all our customer information and the other will put in information pertaining to services rendered on a customers' pc. My question is, I created a form combining these two tables. I did it all as one form instead of using a sub form. When I go to the form to start entering information it will allow me to add the information for the customer but not the information for the computer. The table with the customer information has all the information in it, the table that will have the computer information gets added as the forms ...

Excel 2007: Sort by Cell Color
Hi, I have Excel 2007 with a fairly new computer and 2gb of RAM. When I try to sort a spreadsheet by cell color, the program locks up and I have to quit. There are 46000 records in the sheet - I understand this is a big ask for the computer but with 2gb of RAM it should be able to do it. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can make this work better? Thanks. I hadn't tried sorting by color (cell fill color) before (new XL2007 feature) so I created a 46000 row by 3 column 'database' with two fill colors in the first column. It sorted in less than 5 seconds on a les...

Multiple outlook.exe's running in the processes tab of the Task Manager

Split tasks a splitting headache
Inherited another Project IMS. I am noticing right off that the previous scheduler has been starting tasks without their FS preds completing. Yeah, it does show up as a spit bar in the gantt chart. But, does anyone know a way to filter out just task that started before predecessor completion? I'm dealing with several thousand lines.

Conditional Formatting --- copying to multiple rows
I have a small worksheet, columns A-F are information about an item. Column G will have a value of "Yes" or "No" (or "TRUE" or "FALSE"). If Column G, row 2 is "TRUE" then the format of the font in that cell should be a Bold Red, and the font in the cells A2-F2 should also turn red. If "FALSE" then the text remains black. I can Copy and Paste Special the Format, but then rows 3-2500 are still tied to G2. I can't seem to get the conditional formatting to automatically change the the correspond row/column G. Does that m...

Can't find my Front End Folder after database split
I just split my database base to allow for ease of use for multiple users. Ererything, it seemed, went smoothly until i try to find the fron-end folder. It is nowhere to be found. Should it be label ****_fe.mbd like the back end? Please help. Thaanks. It will be called that, unless you typed something else in the save as dialog. I thought it ended up in the same folder as the backend after splitting. Easiest way is to go back to the original and split it again, this time take note of where you save it before you press the button. Jeanette Cunningham "Joe" <Joe@discussi...

Why is my text hidden behind other cells?
I changed my text to be 90 degrees. When I type, the text only shows in that box. I cannot make it appear OVER the other cells. I need to learn how to 'bring it to front'... if that makes sense.

The only ways to show all the text would be to either increase the height to the row or merge some cells together. -- Ian -- "dANA" <dANA@discussions.microsoft.com> wrote in message news:694DF522-46B4-4D66-A1F9-08469E5A7C50@microsoft.com... >I changed my text to be 90 degrees.

Safe way to check what is in a cell
Hello, I am writing an application that is supposed to parse a spreadsheet file into individual files dependent on what is in the first column. Each block of rows with the same numeric string or number is used to create a new file, i.e. a change iin number signals end of a file. Lines with anything else are to be ignored. For this reason, I need to check the first column for one of the following: 1. A string of numerals, f.ex. "014" 2. A number, f.ex. 610 3. #N/A 4. Blank 5. Anything else So, I need a safe way to tell if I have either 1 or 2, or one of the rest. I have code that ...

The table (three rows high and ten columns long) which are the tickets that will be sold at the tombola will look like the following: | | | 20 | | 40 | | 62 | | 84 | | | | 22 |34 | 43 | 51 | 63 | 72 | 85 | | 8 | | | | | 55 | | 74 | 90 | Numbers needs to be in these columns as players can see easily if they have go...

How to pick a specific cell within a macro .... ??
