    VBA Code to build Hierarchy Table

    Here is the code that is worth a shot.

    It does not create any graphical representation.

    Instead it splits the table-1 as per the level of control & present a table format that is almost like a horizontal organizational hierarchy chart.

    This code creates this Org table in 2 steps.

    • In first Step it decides the ranking for each employee & building a ranking table.
    • Then based on that ranking table, the position of each Employee is decided.

    The resulting table structure will look almost like a tree, easy to understand the flow on control & who is reporting to whom.

    Also, this can be improvised further to color the background cells of nodes as per their position or control ranking.
