Hi Scott, Try http://www.hcad.org/cgi-bin/AV/AddressCount.asp?begstnum=15000&endstnum=29999&zeros=on&stname=hickory+wind+&ranges=on I put my cursor at the left edge of "Owner Name" and left click and hold as I draw the mouse across the list and I end up with 1108170000052 sample 19902 HICKORY WIND DR 77346 and when I paste that to a spread sheet or a text editor I get the account number as part of the name. I use the edit>replace function to remove all the zip codes so I'm left with only 2 columns. I can use the =a2 function to get all the addresses into the "B" column but the sort function is not right.
