1st I am trying to setup a POS System
2nd I want to create a searchable database. What I'm trying to do is create a search box in which text can be entered so that all cell with that text is listed on sheet 1 with the data from the specified column
What I want to be able to do is;
1. Enter info in one cell
2. The data I want returned is not the matched cell but one of the adjoining cells,
I want a simple and efficient way. Please not a Nth number of possibilities, makes sure I'll mess up
My understanding is INDEX/ MATCH is the starting point

If your data has zip codes, postal codes, or city names, select the data and use Insert, 3D Map. (Found to right of chart icons).

Assuming your entry cell is A1.

=INDEX(B1:F50,MATCH(A1,B1:B50,0),4)

This formula will match the value you enter in A1, find the match in column B1:B50...and return the value from the 4th column of the original array (B1:F50). By changing the '4' you can have it return for any column in your specified array.
