Hi Experts (All worksheets same workbook)

Need a macro the well run after the data selection has been made from validation list on cell d18, worksheet "ABC"

Click macro button then >

Populate results into table below same worksheet:-
Data table on worksheet "ABC" d22:d42

The result are pull back from worksheet "data" so look in column z which corresponds to the selection made from the data validation list cell d18 worksheet "ABC"
 And return the results back from Column AB....which goes into range D22:42 in above table and values are text...

Dim dat As Worksheet, nitems As Long, trow As Integer, cel As Range, i As Long
    Set dat = Sheets("Data")
    nitems = WorksheetFunction.CountIf(dat.Range("Z:Z"), ActiveSheet.Range("D18"))
    trow = ActiveSheet.Range("D:D").Find("Total", , , xlWhole).Row
    If trow < 22 + nitems Then
        Cells(trow, 4).Resize(22 + nitems - trow).EntireRow.Insert
    ElseIf trow > 22 + nitems Then
        Cells(22 + nitems, 4).Resize(trow - 22 - nitems).EntireRow.Delete
    End If
    Cells(22, 4).Resize(nitems).ClearContents
    trow = 22 + nitems
    Cells(21, 4) = " "
    For Each cel In dat.Range("Z1:Z" & dat.Range("Z" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row)
        If cel = ActiveSheet.Range("D18") Then
            ActiveSheet.Cells(trow, 4).End(xlUp).Offset(1) = cel.Offset(, 2)
