The accounts dept here have asked would I have a solution for them to make their petty cash summary a bit easier to maintain. At present everything goes into 1 big Excel spreadsheet & this as you can imagine gets very big during the term.

I was wondering if there was a way of taking 1 large Excel spreadsheet (essentially, where the data is inputted initially) which then splits it into other sheets based on the Dept / Category name ... ie. Art dept expenses are in a separate sheet from Admin dept etc.

The only way I've found so far is to manually put the data into individual depts then have it referencing back to a summary sheet but they would rather put data into a summary page first.

I'm considering designing a MySQL database with a PHP front end to make this work - as I know it's definitely possible within that.

Thanks in advance!
