Long list of words to find with Filter

Hi peeps

I have a long list...

CC (County Council)
PCT (Primary Care Trust)

etc etc of words that I want to filter on in a list...  I tried
creating a macro, but it only allows two criteria...

Any ideas as to how I might do this in one operation?  Also, to easily
add words to this list!

Yours hopefully

You can use an Advance Filter to extract the data. There are 
instructions in Excel's Help, and here:

This is an excellent answer - however, the list that I have could hav
the words details any where in the row.

So - column a might contain

St Jospehps Pre-school
University of St Helen
Johns Accountancy Service

The solution suggested is great, but will only work if the list you yo
searching for has the 'criteria' word at the start of the row.

I have 50 words (and growing) that I need to find.  The only technica
solution I can use is Excel.

Hear's hoping!

Problem with List Control Box
I have a list control with 3 columns.

Access2000: Setting a filter to a subform
Hi I have an unbound form fmMain. On this form I have some combo boxes (cbbAGroup, cbbAStatus, cbbAStore), and a subform sfAssets, which is based on form fmAssets. The source for form fmAsset is a table tblAssets with fields AssetID, AGroup,...,CurrStatus, CurrStore, ... etc. For subform sfAssets is defined the link cbbAGroup-->Agroup, i.e. the subform always displays assets of the single group, determined by combo on fmMain.

how can I find the nearest figure?
Hi, I have a list of numbers on column A:A with associated text on column B:B I am doing calculations on another Sheet and come up with a number. I want to compare this number with the Sheet1 A:A column numbers and find the closest number to it amongst then. Then I need to find the associated text for this on Sheet1's B:B text.

Create List/Add Row
Hello, I used the "Create List" function for a number of columns in a worksheet - but not all. I need to add a row, and I keep getting a message that says, "This operation is not allowed.

It's when I try to add a row outside of a list that I get the error. Is there a way to correct this, so I can add/delete rows as needed? Thank you, in advance. Maybe you can convert e...

Creating a price list,with different row heights

Finding Duplicate Names from Different Lists...
Hi guys, I'm having an issue finding and deleting off of a current list of company names, names from another list. For example I have List 1 that has 3,000-4,000 company names and contact names. On List 2 I have a list of company names that I need to take off of List 1. VLOOKUP works to a point, but if on one list the name ends with "Corp." and on the other it is "Corp" (without the period) it won't find it. "Inc." and "Inc" are another issue. Is there a better way than VLOOKUP to find these names? I've tried to do some name prep, but...

Eliminating duplicates in a drop down list
I have constructed a database for a victim services organization with some 2000 clients. (sad commentary on today's world) One of the required reports is all the activity of an individual client.

I set up a popup with a text control wherein a partspec of the client's last name is entered. That information is then sent to a drop down box on the same form with this SQL in the rowsource pro...
