    I cant thank you enough for the trick shown in trump excel custom filter example. I was looking for that solution for ages and it was so simple as shown by you. I have added more helper columns as i needed more than 10 variable to compare. Then I have replicated the same for 5 years performance comparison. In next sheet I have linked all the results through which graphical comparison can be plotted. To cut the story short, with this trick of yours, I could impress my boss. All thanks to you. Regards

    Thanks for sharing your knowledge. Excel can do so much more than any one person knows it seems like. 🙂

    • Thanks for commenting CrisMarie.. Excel is vast, and I learn new things about it everyday

  • I loved the trick of using “FILES” in the name range. it really surprised me http://trumpexcel.com/2015/01/list-of-file-names-from-a-folder-in-excel/ though, there are many VBA solutions to list file names, but this one was really cool and is my favorite. i am a subscriber to trumpexcel and the reason i want to follow is that all of the articles are something new and unprecedented, while in some other blogs, i found cross referenced tips. so keep it up this way, i love to see tips that are not listed elsewhere in other blogs.

    • Thanks for commenting Jam.. I learnt about these Macro 4 functions a while ago and was completely blown away by what FILES formula can do. That blog post is one of my favorites too 🙂

  • Look forward to your newsletter each week!
