Yes, you can use


assuming you don't want the value from the leftmost column, you need to
select 3 columns across
(like if you would select E2:G2 with E2 as the active cell), then enter the
formula in the formula bar and instead pressing enter press ctrl + shift &

or you could use


put that in one cell and copy it across 2 more cells

note that I made the lookup value absolute or else it would change from A1
to B1 etc

As an example, if you have the following table on Sheet 1,

Sheet 1

Red	         1	2	3
Blue	         4	5	6
Green   	  7	8	9

and you want to return mutliple results for a lookup value, say Blue
then on Sheet 2, assuming that your lookup value is in A1, selec
B1:D1, and enter the following array formula:


to be entered using CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER,  and you'll get the followin

Sheet 2

Blue	        4	 5	6

Hope this helps

Ok, first layout a table on Sheet 1 like the one I gave for an example.



and continue to complete the table.

Then switch over to Sheet 2 and enter Blue in A1.

Then select cells B1 to D1.  So you now have three cells highlight, an
Blue as your lookup value in A1.

Press = and enter this formula:


Then press, altogether, the following keys:  CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER

Does this help

Refresh problem for the size grip with Windows XP style #2
