1. Enter or copy this formula into a blank cell where you want to output the result:

=IFERROR(INDEX($B$2:$B$15, SMALL(IF($D$2=$A$2:$A$15, ROW($A$2:$A$15)-ROW($A$2)+1), ROW(1:1))),"" )

Note: In the above formula, B2:B15 is the column contains the matching record you want to return; A2:A15 is the column contains the criterion; and D2 is the specific criterion that you want to return values based on. Please change them to your need.

2. Then, press Ctrl + Shift + Enter keys together to get the first value, and then drag the fill handle down to get all the corresponding records as you need, see screenshot:

Thank you very much, you save lots of work here!





Regarding your formula {=TEXTJOIN(", ",TRUE,IF($A$2:$A$15=D2,$B$2:$B$15,"")},

I changed a little : (=TEXTJOIN(CHAR(10),TRUE,IF($A$2:$A$15=D2,$B$2:$B$15,""))}





Regards,



Jeff

How can you tweak the formula so that you have multiple outputs in column D? E.g. I want to populate column D with each of the countries, such that all of their respective cities will be returned in E? The only work around I have can see is manually changing $D$2

After I extend the data, some of the cells is showing a "0" instead of blank

It means that there is missing data or the wrong type of data in the cell(s) from the column that is being referrenced. For instance, Im working with a bunch of data and I want all ID numbers for workers under a certain supervisor. However, in the table column being referenced with all workers' ID numbers, some cells had the workers last name in it and not their ID numbers. Those exact cells produced 0s when the entire formula was put in, and this is because it was text within a column that is mostly numbers.

Hello, Ahmed,
To solve your problem, please apply the below formulas:
Get the results vertically: =IFERROR(INDEX($B$2:$K$2, SMALL(IF($A$5=$B$1:$K$1, COLUMN($B$1:$K$1:$K$1)-COLUMN($B$1)+1), ROW(1:1))),"" )
Get the results horizontally: =IFERROR(INDEX($B$2:$K$2, SMALL(IF($D$5=$B$1:$K$1, COLUMN($B$1:$K$1:$K$1)-COLUMN($B$1)+1), COLUMN(A1))),"" )
Ge the results in one cell: =TEXTJOIN(", ",TRUE,IF($B$1:$K$1=J5,$B$2:$K$2,""))
Note: These formulas are array formulas, you should press Ctrl + Shift + Enter keys together to get the correct result.
