    This was super useful, thanks! I'm trying to take this one step further and be able to return all match instances of a certain value while having to search through more than a single-column array. To work through this using your example, I added a second column of test scores and modified your formula to look up a given test score and return the names that match that score. I got this to work with INDEX(SMALL()) and can pull all of the names from both test columns. I've also managed to return only names with that score on Test 2 using INDEX(MATCH(INDEX(MATCH))), however this can only find the first instance in the array. What I'm really trying to do is a combination of these: return all of the names with the given array, while narrowing the search to a specific column within the array. Do you have any tips for this?
