Conflict Managament

Conflict Managament

(OP)
I am not sure if this is the right forum so please feel free to redirect me to the right forum.

Is there a way that we are able to automate the conflict checking:

1. The Conflict matrix is a 2-dimensional array "lookup table" where a given function's row position is the same as its column position (all functions down by same all functions across).  The intersection of a function with itself is always ok, and the intersection of a function with another function is subject to the "X" test as we defined as a group.
2. The user access rights report, for each user record is a 1-dimensional array (1x109) where NO is always ok and each "YES" needs to be evaluated by taking the first "YES" occurrence and comparing it to all the other "YESs" for that user record considering the criteria from the Conflict Matrix
So I think we are talking DO...UNTIL loops, dimensional lookups, and IF...THENs, etc. etc. -- e.g. programming.  

Is there anyway programmatically or within excel to accomplish this?

RE: Conflict Managament

Can you tell the same story a bit more down to earth? I don't grasp what a "yes" or "no" actually stands for. I am sure it can be programmed, but the problem has to be understood first. yoda

RE: Conflict Managament

If you're using ADO, you might read up on conflict resolution in disconnected recordsets, as it's pretty much what you describe here.  Most dbms's have something similar.
