can you explain the logic of getting Activity End ? how you get Activity end = 15/3/2020 5:13:53 am for first instance of ABC2000078276, New Addition, and how come the next instance become Upgrade / Downgrade

Once you explain clearly, you can use Power Query to transform to the format

Maybe,

In "Sheet 1" M4 formula copied down :

=IFERROR(LOOKUP(9^9,$Q$4:$Q$51/($N$4:$N$51=H4)/($O$4:$O$51="Active")),"not found")

Regards

Dear;
Activity End is entered manually... Whenever any change occurs; e.g.... A new customer joined, "New Activity"; then customer upgrade or downgrade services; customer went into lock for some time or customer terminated... Each activity has a start and end date...
Change of status; I will manually add date from the network log in the activity end column, after this; will add a new row which is date sorted and add next status of the SAN ID...
This row will get date + 1 sec from the previous activity end date of the same SAN...

Hope this clarifies...

Hi,

or
=IFERROR(INDEX($Q$4:$Q$51,MATCH(2, 1/($O$4:$O$51="Active")/($N$4:$N$51=H4))),"not found")
CTRL-SHIFT-ENTER copy down

Regards
Hi;
Thanks for sharing...
This only capturing if last status is active... Upgrade / Downgrade can also be last status or even lock can be last status before going to termination...

Hi, don't get you, please give us a final output of the correct activity end date that you want, or you just create another few table to replace "Active:" to other status (Upgrade / Downgrade , lock)

Hi; Activity end date is entered manually... Activity 1: New Addition, when customer like to upgrade / downgrade, lock, terminate; we will first close the first activity manually by adding date in activity date column... From this date; we need to derive the next date time of next activity start... If customer next activity is locked; system will get date from last instance and add one sec and will start customer activity which is locked...
