In a range A1:A100 the number 3 shows up 10 times. I have a formula to count all the 3's in the range now I want to know what rows they are on.
 

Excel Facts

When did Power Query debut in Excel?
Although it was an add-in in Excel 2010 & Excel 2013, Power Query became a part of Excel in 2016, in Data, Get & Transform Data.
In cell B!: =if(a1=3,row(a1),"")
Copy down to cell b100

In cell C1: =if(iserror(small($B$1:$B$100,row(1:1)),"",small($B$1:$B$100,row(1:1))
Copy down to cell c100.

OR:

In cell B1: =MATCH(3,A1:A100,FALSE)
and in cell B2: =IF(ISERROR(MATCH(3,INDIRECT("A"&B1+1&":a100"),FALSE)),"",MATCH(3,INDIRECT("A"&B1+1&":a100"),FALSE)+B1)

copy B2 to B100.

This only works if your data actually starts at A1... if it starts on a lower row, you need a more general case.

Book1
ABCD
143
252
365
477
53 
68
73
87
99
Sheet1


C1 is used to specify the entry of interest.

C2:

=COUNTIF(A1:A9,C1)

Determines C1's frequency of occurrence in the target range.

C3:

=IF(ROW()-ROW(C$3)+1<=$C$2,SMALL(IF($A$1:$A$9=$C$1,ROW($A$1:$A$9)),ROW()-ROW(C$3)+1),"")

which is confirmed with control+shift+enter then copied down, determines the native row location per occurrence.
