I have a list of names in rows

A            B

Joe         1
Fred
Sam       1
Sue        1

I would like to create a formula that will show the names with a value of 1 in a cell

so the result would be somthing like

Joe,Sam,Sue

Fred not in list because value <> 1/Blank

Pretty sure you would need VBA to produce the results like that. A formula could produce the results in different cells.

YOu need a user-defined function for that. Here is one: paste into a workbook module and call it from your worksheet like:

=concatplusif(A1:A9,",",1,1)

Thomas
Public Function concatPlusIf(rng As Range, sep As String, lgCriteriaOffset As Long, varCriteria As Variant, Optional noDup As Boolean = False, Optional skipEmpty As Boolean = False) As String
'concatenates a range with the specified separator
Dim cl As Range, strTemp As String

If noDup Then

    Dim newCol As New Collection

    On Error Resume Next

    For Each cl In rng.Cells
        If skipEmpty = False Or Len(Trim(cl.Text)) > 0 Then
            If cl.Offset(, lgCriteriaOffset) = varCriteria Then newCol.Add cl.Text, cl.Text
        End If
    Next
    
    For i = 0 To newCol.Count
        strTemp = strTemp & newCol(i) & sep
    Next

Else
    
    For Each cl In rng.Cells
        If skipEmpty = False Or Len(Trim(cl.Text)) > 0 Then
            If cl.Offset(, lgCriteriaOffset) = varCriteria Then strTemp = strTemp & cl.Text & sep
        End If
    Next

End If

concatPlusIf = Left(strTemp, Len(strTemp) - Len(sep))

End Function

Here's a macro that will do it, regardless of the number of rows
Sub list()

Dim list As String
r = 1
list = ""

While Range("a" & r).Value <> ""
    If Cells(r, 2).Value <> "" Then list = list & Cells(r,2).Value & ", "
    r = r + 1
Wend

    Range("C1").Value = list  

End Sub

Open in new window

JonMny,

If you go to the Articles tab of EE and search for my Dictionary article, I have a code example there that is very similar to your question.
