#### Search Entire Sheet instead of 1?

```I have a function whereby if a string in Sheet 2/Column1 is contained in
Sheet1/Column1, it returns Sheet2/Column1.  I am doing this manually but
would like it to step through the whole table in Sheet 2 (i.e. step through
all for a match.

Currently my formula looks like this;
=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH(Sheet2!B3,Sheet1!A3)), Sheet2!A3)

To get it do do each manually of course I'd need to to

=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH(Sheet2!B1,Sheet1!A1)), Sheet2!A1,
IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH(Sheet2!B2,Sheet1!A1)), Sheet2!A2),
=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH(Sheet2!B3,Sheet1!A1)), Sheet2!A3), etc

So I am trying to do the same thing manually.

I have played with VLoopup and Index but am only frustrating myself :)

This is a little hard to follow, but probably not that hard to accomplish if you
could show some sample data and expected results.  Also, where you want to put

```You can use this array* formula. Note that the ranges inside the IF function
cannot callout entire column.

=INDEX(Sheet1!B:B,MIN(IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH(B3,Sheet1!A1:A250)),ROW(Sheet1!A1:A250))))

if you want to be able to copy this down and get all the results:

=INDEX(Sheet1!B:B,SMALL(IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH(B\$3,Sheet1!A\$1:A\$250)),ROW(Sheet1!A\$1:A\$250)),ROW(A1)))

Now the small function will step through each result.

*Arry formulas need to be confirmed using Ctrl+Shift+Enter, not just Enter.

```Sorry let me try again.

Sheet1: Records
Column1: Name | Column2: OriginCountry
Japanese Doctors Association   |
English Breakfast Tea   |
American Cheese   |

Sheet2: Data
Column1: Country | Column2: Denonym
Japan | Japanese
America | American
British | England
English | England
Maltese | Malta

So now I want to put a formula in Sheet 1/Column 2 that steps through
Sheet2:Column2(Denonym) and if it finds a match updates the value for
Sheet2:Column1 (Country)

```I think you may have reversed some of your values for Sheet 2.  Japan / Japanese
and America / American appear to be correct country / demonym (I think that is
the correct term) pairings.  However, British and English would both be
demonym's for England, as would be Maltese for Malta.

That said, I think Luke was on the right track, but with this clarification, I
think it would look like this (array formula...commit with CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER):

=INDEX(Sheet2!A:A,SMALL(IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH(Sheet2!B\$1:B\$250,A2)),ROW(Sheet2!B\$1:B\$250)),1))
