Assume data in range D6:E11 - months in D6:D11 and numbers in E6:E11.  Headings are in D5:E5.  On filtering multiple values in column D, one may want to view the filtered criteria in cell (separate criteria by comma for multiple selections in auto filter drop down).

For solving this problem, you will have to download and install the morefunc addin from here.  For instructions of installing the addin for Excel 2010, please refer point 4 of the following post.  This add in will enable us to use the following two functions

1. UNIQUEVALUES(); and
2. MCONCAT()

Determine stock transfer from multiple locations

{0 Comments}

The objective is to determine the quantity of stock (of a particular type) to be transferred from "Stock surplus" locations to "Stock deficient" ones.  If all the requirements cannot be met from one location, tap other locations.  The final output should show the location from where stock is being transferred.  Furthermore the order of determining "Stock transfer location" is descending order of stock available in "Stock surplus" locations.  Stock available in "Stock surplus" locations should be determined after setting off quantity already transferred to other locations.
