My formula in excel will not work

Can someone look at the excel example that I downloaded, and tell me what I did wrong? The yellow high-lighted is what I am wanting to accomplish and the light-blue is what I am getting with the formulas I created and am stumped as to what I am doing wrong?
The first part  -- IF(ROWS($F$6:$F6)>COUNTIF(Amount,">0"), -- is working fine but the Index fuction  --  INDEX($A$6:$A$19,SMALL(IF(Amount>0,ROW(Amount)-ROW(D$6)+1),ROWS(F$6:F6))) -- is not working.

In this example, 7 names have amounts in the amount column, and if another name (for instance Susie) would have an amount that needs to dynamically show also.

The formula in F6 is an Array formula.  You need to confirm it with CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER not just ENTER so that you see { } brackets appear around the formula... then you can copy it down.

Also to get rid of the #N/A in the VLOOKUP columns, add an IFERROR()

e.g. in G6:

=IFERROR(VLOOKUP($F6,$A$6:$D$19,2,FALSE),"")

copied down

Thank you so much for your help.  Your solution worked beautifully.  I would not have figured that out on my own.
