    Returning a multiple-result lookup to a single cell

    I have data in the following format:

    Week, Orders
    15, order1
    15, order2
    16, order3
    16, order4
    17, order5
    17, order6
    17, order7

    I wish to lookup which orders are due in each week, returning the results to a single cell for each week, eg

    Week, Orders
    15, order1 order2
    16, order3 order4
    17, order5 order6 order7

    I can return it to multiple cells with an array formula; do I need to continue down that path and gather those results somehow, or is there a better way of going about this?

    i think you'd have to use that array and then concantanate the results

    First, install the special Concatentation UDF into your sheet:
