I am creating a cold war timeline to write a history. There are many entries, which consist of an "event" in one cell, a "date", a "place", and names of "people" who were there or affected. SO for example: "Cuban Missile Crisis first meeting", "March 4, 1964", "White House", "JFK, Maxwell Taylor, RFK, Curtis Lemay, Etc..."
Here's my problem: Suppose I have a hundred such entry rows. "JFK" is at many of the events, "RFK" is at a few. How can I find all the entries with both "JFK" and "RFK"?
I suppose I need some way to tag the various rows with the characters that are associated with these events - not put a bunch of names in one cell or all the names in individual cells.
Is this possible with a spreadsheet? Or do I need to export all the data to some other program?
