#### Returning Multiple values from A Vlookup

```I need a formula to return multiple values from a look up table as the number
appears multiple times in a column.
Reference cell is \$C\$6 eg = 4101

Current formula only return the first one it finds
=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(\$C\$6,TNI,3,FALSE)),"",(VLOOKUP(\$C\$6,TNI,3,FALSE)))

I need the Cell to return all the values it finds from the one code eg  =
QCBD, QTNS/QCBD/QBMH/QMRE, QCBD/QAGW

Lookup table is TNI (A1:C1053) I need it to return all values in Column (C)
A	              	B			        C
4077	All suburbs	        QRLE/QRLD
4078	Forest Lake	        QRLD/QLGH
4101	Highgate Hill	        QCBD
4101	South Brisbane	QTNS/QCBD/QBMH/QMRE
4101	West End	                QCBD/QAGW
4102	Dutton Park	        QCBD
4102	Woolloongabba	QTNS/QBMH/QMRE/QBBS
4103	All suburbs	        QTNS

Thanks
Michael

```Please note that this is an array formula. You create array formulas in the
same way that you create other formulas, except you press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER to
enter the formula. If successful in 'Formula Bar' you can notice the curly
braces at both ends like "{=<formula>}"

=IF(COUNTIF(INDEX(TNI,,1),\$C\$6)<ROW(A1),"",
INDEX(TNI,SMALL(IF(INDEX(TNI,,1)=\$C\$6,
ROW(INDEX(TNI,,1))),ROW(A1)),3))

I'm using Money 2003. I would like to be able to see the \$ value I have in my portfolio over time. So that I can weep.

In fact, I can't seem to find a view at all that shows you the net value of your portfolio/individual stocks changing over time.

can lookup return cell reference istead of "text" for sumif?
I am trying to use a lookup-function to determine a different sum range for several criteria.
