Does anybody know how to create a series of PDFs from a data validation list wherein (be it macros, etc.) the program runs through each individual name in the list and pulls in the associated data points that are specific to field on the list, while simultaneously labeling each pdf report unique to the name on the list? Currently, I must cycle through one-by-one, click “save” each time, and then label it, which takes hours.

Hey 🐠, looking for some advice - what’s the best way to approach a conversation with a more junior team member about being out of office frequently?
