    Vlookup with multiple returns

    Hello,

    I'm trying to figure out a way to use Vlookup to bring back multiple values for specific terms. Here is a sample of what my reference table looks like:

    Col. A Col. B
    Magi1 15
    Magi1 9
    Magi1 12
    Magi1 13
    Hspx9 4
    Hspx9 2
    Rrbm16 23
    Rrbm16 31
    Rrbm16 17

    So I I'm trying to find the values in Column A, for example Magi1, and then use my formula to return each value corresponding to Magi1, which here would be 15, 9, 12, and 13. I don't want to sum these Column B values or anything. I just want to see all the Column B values that each correspond to a specific value in Column A.

    Thank-you

    Re: Vlookup with multiple returns

    a vlookup will only return the very 1st match it find. so unless you can find some1 to add something to the values in A to make the duplicates unique, then I would suggest that you maybe take a look at using filters?
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools
    3. Click on the star if you think someone helped you

    Itís not possible to get the matching data with concatenated result using a single cell worksheet function. So try the below UDF

    =CLookup(LookupValue,LookupRange,ResultRange)

    In C1 cell
    Formula: copy to clipboard

    Drag it down.

    Refer the attached excel for details.
