Hi Experts

We have a data that contains a route id, drop sequence, truck id and if it participates in our program (yes or no).  What we would like is to get a new tab that would show us the truck, the participants (those marked "YES") and the 3 stops (using drop sequence) before the record and 3 after (ones marked "no")  so we would end up with 7 records total for each routeid (including the one marked "yes".

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Yes, the problem is that it will give me the universe but won't give the just the 3 records below and the 3 records above itself.

OK, I got so far as associating the 3 before and the three after with all the YESes.  At this point you'd probably need a VBA to condense the data on a new tab and unfortunately I'm not at all versed in VBAs.

Personally, I'd copy and paste values, then sort all the YESes together (you have to copy and paste values, otherwise the Before/After formulas will pull the wrong data).
