Excel 2000: Periodic sampling of text data
Posted on 2002-04-24
I'm trying to help an associate develop what I believe will be a (fairly) simple Excel macro, but I have ~0 experience with Excel macro programming (surprise, bet you don't get that often). Anyway, assuming the data occupies about 15 columns, we want to extract say columns 1-3,10, and 13, from every 5th row. Tried doing this with Analysis Toolkit's Sampling method, but it only works with numeric data. Data size is ~2000 rows. Note nothing fancy is required here, just selecting the information and copying it so it can be pasted into another sheet.
Thanks in advance for any input.
