Try this UDF...
Function GetVlookupData(LookUpValue As Range, LookUpRange As Range, ColumnIndex As Integer)
Dim x
Dim i As Long, c As Long
Dim rng As Range
Dim str As String
c = ColumnIndex
x = LookUpRange.Value
For i = 1 To UBound(x, 1)
   If x(i, 3) = LookUpValue Then
      If str = "" Then
         str = x(i, c)
      Else
         str = str & "_" & x(i, c)
      End If
   End If
Next i
GetVlookupData = str
End Function

Open in new window

Then use it like this......

In AB2
=GetVlookupData($M2,$A$2:$G$27,1)

Open in new window


In AC2
=GetVlookupData($M2,$A$2:$G$27,6)

Open in new window


In AD2
=GetVlookupData($M2,$A$2:$G$27,7)

Open in new window


For details, refer to the attached.

PS. You may change the delimiter as per your requirement in the following line of code
str = str & "_" & x(i, c)

That's because your lookup value is a number and the lookup column is text.

Try the below code.....
Function GetVlookupData(LookUpValue As Range, LookUpRange As Range, ColumnIndex As Integer)
Dim x
Dim i As Long, c As Long
Dim rng As Range
Dim str As String
c = ColumnIndex
x = LookUpRange.Value
For i = 1 To UBound(x, 1)
   If CStr(x(i, 3)) = CStr(LookUpValue) Then
      If str = "" Then
         str = x(i, c)
      Else
         str = str & "_" & x(i, c)
      End If
   End If
Next i
GetVlookupData = str
End Function

Open in new window
