I have attached a spreadsheet here to demonstrate what I'm trying to do.


I have a list, with a department number and an employee name on one spreadsheet.  More than one employee may work in a department.  

I need to have each person who matches a department show up , I've tried a Vlookup formula however this only returns the first person,  I also tried a match formula,  any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

use this formula, it is array formula so enter it with special key stroke of Control + Shift +Enter

see attached

=IFERROR(INDEX(Sheet2!$B$2:$B$9,SMALL(IF(Sheet1!B9=Sheet2!$A$2:$A$9,ROW(Sheet2!$B$2:$B$9)-ROW(Sheet2!$B$2)+1),ROWS(Sheet2!$A$2:A2))),"")

Hi Professor JimJam,

Thank you,  

When I apply this solution to the larger spreadsheet I am not getting the right names produced by the formula.  A random name appears to show up.  What could I be misapplying?

This is what my formula looks like when converted to work for the larger spreadsheet

=IFERROR(INDEX('ADP Hours Worked by Dept Report'!B:B,SMALL(IF(B13='ADP Hours Worked by Dept Report'!A:A,ROW('ADP Hours Worked by Dept Report'!B:B)-ROW('ADP Hours Worked by Dept Report'!$B$2)+1),ROWS('ADP Hours Worked by Dept Report'!$A$2:A2))),"")

On the test sheet that is attached to the original question, the return appears to be 0 with the Ctrl Shift Enter.

put this formula in C9 and copy down

=IFERROR(INDEX(MyData[Payroll Name],SMALL(IF('Main Street'!B9=MyData[Worked In Department],ROW(MyData[Payroll Name])-ROW('ADP Hours Worked by Dept Report'!$B2)+1),COUNTIF('Main Street'!$B$9:$B9,'Main Street'!$B9))),"")
