Hi Experts,

I have a table with the following characteristics:
The column headers represent names of group leads within the company.
The row headers represent different software applications.
A given cell in the table essentially notes the # of licenses they have for a given software application.

How can I create a macro that will create a summarized list as follows:
John Doe's team has the following licenses:
- MS Word: 2
- MS Visio: 4
John Doe's team has the following licenses:
- MS Access: 3
- MS One Note:7

In the above example, the intention is to not list any software application for which the a given team does not have any licenses for.

As a bonus, if it's possible to do this via a formula instead, that would be amazing.

ok noted I had already done it but you want the output to be all software in 1 cell ? or can it be each software on 1 row ?

Take a look at this I can modify it.

Make sure to activate macros and press on the button.

Thanks gowflow.
Looks good.  However, did you intentionally just exclude "Excel" software (or second row) in the summary macro you created?
To answer your question, a separate cell for each software does not work in my case.  Preference is to have the name in one cell with the summary of the software (all licenses) in the cell below.

ok noted.

Is this what you want ? Just make sure you never put a total in Sheet1 or else it will take it as 'licensed software' which we surely don't want to do !!! :)
