    I am trying to design a form that will automatically search my excel sheet and extract and display rows of data that meet the criteria.

    The data I have in my database contains numerous field with address and sales info, but the fields that I need to sort are by Name, date and price range.

    On my input form I want to be able to specify a customers name (contained in the name field of my database - column A), I want to get sales within the last 90 days (from the date field in my database - column H and sales value with a certain range......say within $100 of an amount I specify, this would come from the sale value field - column F). I also only want the last 5 sales if there are more that fit within that date and price criteria.

    Is there a formula that will seach my database, filter the columns by the above criteria and then display those data rows on my form......in cells/rows that I specify?

    Currently I am manually filtering the fields to get the criteria and then copying and pasting onto the form. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Haven't got the time to help, but I seriously suggest that you read up on advanced filter

    http://www.meadinkent.co.uk/xlfilter.htm

    I have put the link to Excel 2003, but all the Excel versions have Advanced Filter. Excel 2007 has it as well.
