    Thanks ExcellsFun for the great trick. This works 99.9% perfect for me except the formula returns zeros if there is no data in a field. It would be great if it could be left empty or blank. I'm using Excel 2016. Can you help me out please.

    Can someone tell me if their is a function I can use that is similar to the Find & Select (binoculars) feature? I need to place a "Search for Client" box in the upper left hand corner of my spreadsheet in BIG RED LETTERS for users who have to idea how to use the normal binocular feature, which is about 90% of the users.

    You have soooooo many videos, it's awesome. But, that makes it hard to find the video that can answer my question. I have a column of email addresses (60,000 cells). I have another column of competitor domains (120 cells) i.e. @competitordomain.com. I want to pull all of the emails out of the column with 60,000 records that have a domain that matches one of the 120 records. Will this lookup do it or is there a better way?

    Hello. I would like a simple formula that will count the number of cells that contain only a partial word in excel.  For instance, I would like to count the number of times that I have bought from a particular store, but in the worksheet, the cells don't always contain the exact text. Sometimes I copy and paste from the banks website, other times, I manually have put in the text into the cells.  But I need a formula that will count all the cells that have a partial text or variation of it.  Countif don't do it. Or at least I can't seem to do it right.  It wants to count only exact references.  Can u help  me with this?

    That is a lot of records. It would be best to have a helper column and use SEARCH and what ever other criteria you want in AND, then do a straight INDEX and MATCH or VLOOKUP. . Do not use an array formula – becasue it will be too slow. But a million rows, no matter what you do that will be slow, if you can do it at all…

    In essence you must use SMALL and IF construction to replace Excel 2010 function AGGREGATE.

    so i saw this vid a while back – pretty much when it came out however i didnt duplicate the solution – after learning more and more about array formulas from your vids (thanks), i was able to come up with my own solution – Funny thing is it came out a bit like yours! Thanks for these:

    IFERROR(INDIRECT("A"&MATCH(SMALL(IFERROR(SEARCH($A$1,$A$3:$A$39)+ROW($A$3:$A$39)/1000,""),ROWS($B$3:B3)),IFERROR(SEARCH($A$1,$A$3:$A$39)+ROW($A$3:$A$39)/1000,""),0)+2),"")
