thank you both for the replies,they both seem to be able to do what I am wanting,please could you advise on the following that I am having problems with.

is there away to "Undo" in ASAP,if I have read help correctly this cannot be done or is there a work around?

is there away to stop a name appearing more than once in the new list.

Can you not save a copy of the original file?

There is no Undo with ASAP. But you can keep your master list, then copy it to another range then use ASAP on that copied range.
