I am trying to find out if something like this can be done using the advanced filter or something.

basically I would like to check two columns(say Columns B & F) if they contains any of search words(say department names, MD-1, MD-52 & VA-23). B & F columns contain 0 or more department names separated by / like this MD-1/MD-34.
If any record contains those search words, I would like copy that record with specific column values( I don't need everything from that row, just a few specifica columns say columns A, B, F,U,Z)
Thanks much.
