The file shows 5 levels of product information product type, company, color, sub classification and product. Also imagine 100's of product types and 100's of months of data. It all follows the same basic layout throughout.
Beside the product's are monthly sales dollars and units sold. I'd like a flat list of this data for pivot use.
Side note - the file i'm working with has groupings that collapse this data, is there possibly a non vba way of getting a flat list? food for thought
Attached is a file and the code here shows how to get this task done properly with 3 levels of data. (Thanks nutsch)
