What do you mean by "auto populate a grid"? Do you mean getting data from an external source (like a database, or a csv file) into Excel? Check out the options Excel offers to you on the Data tab of the ribbon.
Many thanks Jan, much appreciated. It's for a spreadsheet that is already populated with various data fields. This can also be added to of course on an ongoing basis. The solution will be to have the data auto-feed/auto-populate into an associated (adjacent) grid. So that when someone enters or changes the data in the spreadsheet it automatically feeds into/changes in the separate grid. I hope that makes sense...?
