    Formula to search multiple sheets and return specific cells from the matched row

    Good Morning,

    I can usually figure out my formulas between reading, experimenting and web examples but Im stuck on this one.

    I want to use data in column B of Master, to search all other worksheets for a match.
    If a match is found, I want to return the data in cells Bx, Dx, Ex, from the matched row. where x = the row number of the match.
    If not matched on any sheet, populate with "no match found"

    I have shown the result I'm trying to reach on Master in highlighted red.

    Thanks alot for the help !!

    If you have a small number of sheets, you can use nested IFERROR functions like so

    =IFERROR(INDEX(MYSHEET1!B$1:B$5,MATCH( $B1, MYSHEET1!$A$1:$A$5,0)), IFERROR(INDEX(MYSHEET2!B$1:B$5,MATCH( $B1, MYSHEET2!$A$1:$A$5,0)), IFERROR(INDEX(MYSHEET3!B$1:B$5,MATCH( $B1, MYSHEET3!$A$1:$A$5,0)),"No Match Found")))

    If you have a significant number of sheets, you'll need to go to VBA. I can't help you there.
