    Feed names from one column to other columns

    Good Afternoon ExcelForum,

    I've been struggling with this one task. This is probably not even a difficult question or problem for most of you but i just wanted to see how it was done. I would like to be able to feed a master list of names in one column. In the adjacent column I have a "Location", lets just call it A, B, and C. so for example I have Person A in location A in the master list. I would like for the name to be added or copied to another list, for location A. Please see attached picture and excel file for reference.

    Thank you all for taking the time to read my post.

    Thank You in Advance

    Re: Feed names from one column to other columns

    In E3
    =IFERROR(INDEX($B$3:$B$22,SMALL(IF($C$3:$C$22=RIGHT(E$2,1),ROW($A$3:$A$22)-ROW($A$3)+1),ROWS($1:1))),"")
    ...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. Then copy down
    Then the same for G & I but change
    RIGHT(E$2,1) to suit

    Re: Feed names from one column to other columns

    Thank You very much for your help. I've been playing with the formula to try and understand it. So far I've been unsuccessful in modifying it to fit my needs. the location i require has three letters. I attempted altering "Right(E$2,1)" to Right(E$2,3) but i do not get the desired output. additional assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank You Again

    In your test file the location is either A, B or C.
    If that's not the case then please supply an updated workbook, showing accurate data.
