I'm working with a number of data lists that are keyed by document name. The document names, while very descriptive, are quite cumbersome if I need to view them on (up to 256 bytes is a lot of real estate) and I'd love to be able to create a smaller keyfield that's readily reproducible in case I need to do a
VLOOKUP from another workseet or workbook.
I'm thinking a hash from the title that'd be unique and reproducible for each title would be most appropriate. Is there a function available, or am I looking at developing my own algorithm?
Any thoughts or ideas on this or another strategy?
