   Title: Problem with MVLOOKUP

zorvek (Kevin Jones)ConsultantCommented:
From the page:

The program works like VLOOKUP, but it is entered as an array formula and returns multiple values. The problem occurs, if the lookup value you are searching for only has 1 entry in the table array. MVLOOKUP will keep duplicating the results in all the cells you have selected for the formula.
