View Full Version : Adding a value to the first instance of duplicate values in a column

Hi Guys,

I am writing a MONSTER report that draws most of its content from 2 separate SQL Server Databases on our company server. It is an annual report that should list total expenditure for the year, subtracted from a global budget per project. Each month report (12 sheets = 12 months, where each month has its own Query delivering result for just that month) list all Requisitions processed against all active projects for that month.

On this list I will typically have multiple requisitions for a particular project. Now each line on this sub-report for the month will list the Requisition Number, Description, Project Code and its total requisition cost. So I will have several entries for different requisitions against a single project. What I want to do is to find the first instance of a Project Code (Column "F" in my case) and put that Project's entire Budget value next to it (Column "H" in my case). Essentially I have a SUM() function calculating the total Project Budgets for Column "H". If I deliver the Project Budget (using the Project Code as a function parameter/argument) then the same Budget total is printed for each line item and thus duplicated on many lines relating to the same project, so my totals are incorrect.

Can I isolate the first instance of a Project Code in Column "F" and just add that Project's Budget value into Column "H" once only? If so, how would I go about this?

You could use a vlookup as this only returns the first result in a column. Of course thats if you only have a limited number of project codes.

Are you OK to use a UDF?

Nah, VLOOKUP won't work, because I am working with data from a SQL Server DB. I think I found a solution. I simply created another VBA macro that collects the DISTINCT Project Codes from the Database (with the same criteria used to generate the full list of Requisitions), then I iterate through this result set. During each iteration, I simply use the Find() function on Column F, collect that Project's budget from the Database and then programmatically type it into Column H.

This is what my Code looks like (thus, I am quite fine with UDF's :yes)
