    TEXTJOIN array for cells with functions in them (bug?)

    Hello,

    I am experiencing great difficulties with the TEXTJOIN function as an array (CSE). In my attached workbook, the "comments" column joins text based on whether or not there are values in columns 1-13.
    It is working fine, however, as soon are there's a function in the cells with numbers, it behaves oddly. It works fine, until i start sorting the cells. Whenever i sort for a value, and then clear the filter, the comment cell, which is supposed to show a string of text, is just blank for the cell where it drags the number from a function.

    In my workbook, the cell H6 drags its number from A16 (234). When i sort, and then clear the filter for a random value, the comment associated with the cell disappears.

    Thanks for your help!

    First try changing the formulas in H and I to
    Formula: copy to clipboard

    and
    Formula: copy to clipboard
    Please Login or Register  to view this content.
    as long as there is only one value to reference in A and C this will work.

    Then remove the filters and re apply to only C:P. Sort and it still works at my end.

    Did this help?

    I would cut G3:AA3 and paste at G1:AA1

    Then P3 with CSE
    =TEXTJOIN(", ",TRUE,IF(ISNUMBER(E3:O3)*(E3:O3<>0),(Q$1:AA$1),""))

    Re: TEXTJOIN array for cells with functions in them (bug?)

    Hi, thanks for your reponse.
    I failed to mention that my "real" worksheet is about 50 times bigger with thousands of functions all over. So I would have to redo all of those functions in order for this to work.
    I guess maybe TEXTJOIN isn't the way to do it. Do you have any suggestions for the same result, but with a different function?

    Thanks for your reponse,
    I do however need my headers to be different that the actual comments, hence the comments are placed at the back of the sheet.
