Hi,

I have a row of data in column B, there may be data anywhere from B1-B10,000. Can i return to M1, M2, M3 etc any results.

The data in ColB will always be "Double Div"

So if theres an instance return it, i can guarantee this wont happen more than 50 times so i could drag down till then.

Ive attached the file

Thanks
Seamus

Seamus - do you mean col A? Col B is empty. An instance of what - not clear what you are looking for?

My best guess - in M7:
=IF(COUNTIF(INDEX(B:B,C7):INDEX(B:B,IF(C8="",65536,C8-1)),"Double Div")>0,"Double Div","")
and copy down.

Perhaps this in M1 and down. An array formula so Ctrl+Shift+Enter:

=IF(ROWS(M$6:M6)<=COUNTIF($B$1:$B$1500,"Double Div"),"B" & SMALL(IF($B$1:$B$1500="Double Div",ROW($M$1:$M$1500)-ROW($M$1)+1),ROWS(M$6:M6)),"")
