    Column from matching values

    Hi,

    I have a two columns of names, different length, and want to come up with a third column which lists all the matching matching values of columns 1 and 2. Any idea of how to do that?

    You havent stated what you expect the output to look like and I can see several ways of outputting this.

    Post a sample spreadsheet with expected results, remove any sensitive data, create a mockup example if necessary.
    Use the Go Advanced option at the bottom of the page then scroll down to Manage Attachments as the "paperclip" method does not work on this forum.

    Ensure you describe your problem clearly, I have little time available to solve these problems and do not appreciate numerous changes to them.

    I cant get this working without a helper column
    Your blank top row and column implies the data starts at B3 (Billy).

    in D3
    =IFERROR(VLOOKUP(B3,C$3:C$6,1,0),"")

    in E3
    =IFERROR(INDEX($D$3:$D$8,AGGREGATE(15,6,ROW($D$3:$D$8)/(($D$3:$D$8<>"")),ROWS(A$3:A3))-(3-1),1),"")

    This assumes the first column will be equal to or longer than the second column, if that's not the case you'll need to swap the B and C columns around in the formulas
