    Formula to check list value the return corresponding column info

    Hi guys,
    I am stuck with a formula to calculate the following example:

    Column a Column b
    Item 1 1
    Item 2 0
    Item 3 1
    Item 4 1
    Etc

    Column a contains text description, column b will only contain a 1 or a 0. I would like display in column c all text descriptions from column a if column b is equal to 1.
    Thanks in advance

    hi neilwilson. maybe:
    =IF(B1=1,A1,"")

    or
    =IF(B1,A1,"")

    Thanks for the response, maybe my example was a bit to simple.
    Let me explain my actual situation. I have multiple sheets with capability data for machines. For each machine there are value for quality checks, if the value is <1.33 I return a 1 if not I return a 0 (into the next adjacent column) I have a list with hundreds of quality checks and I would like on the first sheet to look at all sheets and any value that is a 1 then to return the name of quality check. Hope that makes sense. I'm guessing that some kind of index formula maybe required?
