I am trying to use Index and Match to return the first date something was billed. Conversely, eventually I need to find the same for the last date. Right now, I am using a simple index match based on the row number, but if the activity changes, I need to validate the activity on Sheet 1 with the description on Sheet 2. There needs to be some logic in the formula to match the description to ensure it is looking up the correct row. Thus the logic would be, lookup/match the description in column A, then lookup and return the corresponding date for the first column within the corresponding row with a dollar value in it.

I tried to do an array formula but it won't take data from another worksheet in the workbook. Current formula is =index('Daily Report Log'!A9:A23, Match("*CFT*",'Daily Report Log'!M9:M23,0)) which I get the 1st date reference BUT not any other dates after. I'm currently using INDEX MATCH - which simply returns the first match ONLY. But there are multiple matches, that need to be listed. I need to see multiple matches listed. The data is coming from another worksheet within the workbook. Not on the same page.
