Thank you. This works well. In case you need to search a "text" within the search field you can try the find command as well - example =transpose(filter($B$2:$B$224,FIND(C5,$A$2:$A$224,1)))

Is there a way to do this where the values it retrieves are conditional? (i.e., it will only spit back the values that fall within a certain date range)
I am trying to add variables to it, but the formula keeps breaking.

This function is limited to 10 rows only. Is there a way to extend to indefinitely?

Is there a way to adjust this formula to only list unique values?
