# Excel - IF Function Problem - Expert Solution

Question description:
This user has given permission to use the problem statement for this blog.

I need to find all values in Sheet 2: Column B that match the values in Sheet 1: Column C-X and return the values in Sheet 1: Column A to Sheet 2: Column E. There may be multiple matches and these need to be Comma Separated (or in separate columns and I can concatenate them afterwards) If some sample data is required please let me know.

Hi, Thank you for using Got It Pro. I’m happy to be able to help you today.
Excelchat Expert 08/02/2018 - 11:22
Great
Excelchat Expert 08/02/2018 - 11:23
okay, let me reiterate
Excelchat Expert 08/02/2018 - 11:23
column A in sheet 2 matches data in columns from D to N in sheet 1
Excelchat Expert 08/02/2018 - 11:23
is that correct?
User 08/02/2018 - 11:24
Sheet 2: Column A matches Sheet 1: Column B - X
User 08/02/2018 - 11:24
(Sorry I deleted a few columns before adding the sample)
Excelchat Expert 08/02/2018 - 11:25
no worries
Excelchat Expert 08/02/2018 - 11:26
ok so when Sheet2 column A matches column B-X it retrieves the SKU in column A sheet 1
Excelchat Expert 08/02/2018 - 11:26
and adds it to column B sheet 2
Excelchat Expert 08/02/2018 - 11:26
correct?
User 08/02/2018 - 11:26
Returns to Column C +
Excelchat Expert 08/02/2018 - 11:26
okay
User 08/02/2018 - 11:26
There'll be multiple matches and I want those in Column C, D, E etc.
Excelchat Expert 08/02/2018 - 11:26
do you mind if I change the layout of the data in sheet1
Excelchat Expert 08/02/2018 - 11:27

User 08/02/2018 - 11:27

Excelchat Expert 08/02/2018 - 11:27

Excelchat Expert 08/02/2018 - 11:27

Excelchat Expert 08/02/2018 - 11:44

Excelchat Expert 08/02/2018 - 11:44

Excelchat Expert 08/02/2018 - 11:46

Sorry it crashed on me
User 08/02/2018 - 11:50
Excelchat Expert 08/02/2018 - 11:50
no worries yeah it did that with me too
Excelchat Expert 08/02/2018 - 11:50
because it's handling lots of data
Excelchat Expert 08/02/2018 - 11:50
with array formulas
Excelchat Expert 08/02/2018 - 11:50
which requires lots of processing power
User 08/02/2018 - 11:51
It does looks as though it's working
User 08/02/2018 - 11:51
From what I can see
User 08/02/2018 - 11:52
Is their anyway I can copy this over to my excel doc without it crashing?
Excelchat Expert 08/02/2018 - 11:52

Excelchat Expert 08/02/2018 - 11:52
Excelchat Expert 08/02/2018 - 11:52
User 08/02/2018 - 11:52
Oh actaully
User 08/02/2018 - 11:53
I don't think it has worked I'm afraid
User 08/02/2018 - 11:54
CFFMFST should be in anything in the category 9121 but it's not on that list
Excelchat Expert 08/02/2018 - 11:54
which row is that?
User 08/02/2018 - 11:54
1456 - 1461
User 08/02/2018 - 11:55
They're all category 9121
User 08/02/2018 - 11:55
According to the other Sheet, SKU CFFMFST should be showing for that category ID
Excelchat Expert 08/02/2018 - 11:55
okay let me check
User 08/02/2018 - 11:55
Row 46 on Sheet 1
Excelchat Expert 08/02/2018 - 11:55

Excelchat Expert 08/02/2018 - 12:05
Excelchat Expert 08/02/2018 - 12:06
it's just calculating
Excelchat Expert 08/02/2018 - 12:06
It's taking some time because of the size of the data
User 08/02/2018 - 12:06
No problem
User 08/02/2018 - 12:06
I will wait :)
User 08/02/2018 - 12:07
