Smile Excel Script??


Say, I have an excel sheet (Excel-1)where a particular entry is there..say HTC Hero.I have a new Excel Sheet (Excel-2)where there are entries related to HTC Hero.But since the list in new excel is too long..I am searching it manually. Any program which will search it through in one shot or program?
I dont know if its right forum to ask but anyone who can answer that would be helpful.
Moderators, Please excuse us as it applies to OpenOffice.org project too such as in spreadsheet.

Have you tried using AutoFilter? Put your cursor in the first cell of your column headings and select AutoFilter. Then you can go to the column you need, select HTC Hero from your filters and it will only pick out rows with that in it. Also look at Pivot Tables.
