    How to adjust Index to catch duplicate entries?

    Good morning, I have the attached excel sheet that works okay... a few issues I ran into is in some cases the name will be blank but will have data in the other fields but when that option is selected nothing comes up.

    Also if there happens to be more than one Jane I would like for all records with the Jane to appear... in some cases I will have up to 20.

    Re: How to adjust Index to catch duplicate entries?

    Try this formula instead in B7:

    =IFERROR(INDEX($J$11:$L$16,SMALL(IF($J$11:$J$16=INDEX($M$3:$M$7,$O$1),ROW($J$11:$J$16)-ROW($J$11)+1),ROWS(B$7:B7)),COLUMNS($A$1:A$1)),"")

    confirmed with CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER not just ENTER, then copy across and down

    to hide 0's, format B7:D8 as Custom with Type: 0;-0;;@

    The date column format would be: m/d/yyyy;-0;;@
