    Multi value Vlookup in same cell

    Hi,
    i'm trying to work on a way to lookup the values in a cell(comma separated) and return multi values.

    this is the formula i'm trying to use, and if i go in the formula it looks like it is find the correct values but is showing error in return

    =TEXTJOIN(",",TRUE,IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH('ENOVIA LU'!AB:AB,VLOOKUP(CALC!B4,ENOVIA!A:IJ,244,0))),'ENOVIA LU'!AC:AC,""))


    i also attached the file,Formula is on Sheet "CALC"

    my expected result in the formula would be 100,101,102,103, which corresponds to the looked up values A,B,C,D
    can anyone support me on this?

    one last comment: i have a way to do the activity in VBA, it's working but it's probably too heavy and file gets locked while processing..

    In the attached copy of the file the formula uses dynamic named ranges for 'ENOVIA LU'!$AB:$AB and 'ENOVIA LU'!$AC:$AC so that the formula doesn't evaluate blanks.
    Look at the Name Manager on the Formulas tab for the Refers to: of the ranges.
    The array entered formula* reads: =TEXTJOIN(",",TRUE,IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH(Enovia_Lu_Description,VLOOKUP(CALC!B4,ENOVIA!A10:IJ11,244,0))),Enovia_Lu_Code,""))
    *Array entered formulas are confirmed by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER to activate the array, not just ENTER. You will know the array is active when you see curly braces { } appear around your formula. If you do not CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER you will get an error or a clearly incorrect answer.
    Let us know if you have any questions.

    @JeteMc
    you anticipated my move, i actually fixed it with named ranges and now the file looks ok, but i have an extra challenge which i'm struggling with. as you can see in the example attached the search is not looking for the exact values within commas but for example, when searching for "Action Sports" it's returning both "Action Sports" and "Sport" codes. i tried to use FIND instead of search or EXACT but with no success. any idea if there is a way to do so?
