Default Try to sort mailing lists

We have several mailing lists, that do not share the same people. What I would like to accomplish is have a master spreadsheet where once we enter a persons name/info it updates automatically on which ever mailing list they are on. The only solution I know to implement would be the IMPORTRANGE function. However if I were to add or remove cells this would cause more trouble than it;s worth and we have over 400 contacts. Any way to attach a formula to a name(Ie Edward Smith) then have the rest of the row copy info from the master sheet? Sorry I am novice at this

In that case, what is the point of having sub-sheets if all the data will be on a master sheet? Surely a column on the master sheet could be used to indicate which mailing list each person is on, then filter by that column for mailing purposes.

That is deceptively easy...... Is their a way to print off the data I've used as a csv? The main point is to use the address list for the mail merge function.

There is no need for the csv - you can use Word's mailmerge, which includes the necessary filtering tools, directly with the Excel data source.
