Consolidating columns plus lookup and return multiple values?

Hi all,

I'm looking to find a solution for joining (sorting and removing duplicates) multiple columns in one cell and then lookup all values in a separate table and return potential values in another cell. It would look something like this:

Column1Column2Column3Column4ConsolidatedLookup values
Apple AppleA
Banana,Apple Apple,BananaA,C
OrangeOrangeOrangeB
Banana Orange Banana,OrangeB,C
Apple BananaApple,BananaA,C

<colgroup><col span="4"><col><col></colgroup><tbody>
</tbody>

Note that Columns can contain multiple values.

The lookup table in this example would be:
FruitLetter
AppleA
OrangeB
BananaC

<colgroup><col span="2"></colgroup><tbody>
</tbody>

I have found partial solutions out there, but often combining these slows down my spreadsheet.

Thanks!
