# Formula to pick out certain numbers.

Hello everyone. I need a formula to look for all the 1's and 2's (A2:J2) and list the corisponding number(A1:J1). My original spreadsheet has 37 numbers. I'm running on a Windows 10 and I think Excel 2013(office 360).
Row 1 A:J are the numbers that it's looking for.
Row 2 A:J is the number of times it found a certain number.
L2:?2 - is the list of numbers(which are in A1:J1) that met the criteria
L2:?2 Can have from 1 to to how ever many numbers it finds.

A1:J1 --- 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
A2:J2 --- 0 1 1 3 2 3 2 2 1 5
L2:?2 --- 2 3 5 7 8 9 (formula to find numbers )

### Excel Facts

Workdays for a market open Mon, Wed, Friday?
Yes! Use "0101011" for the weekend argument in NETWORKDAYS.INTL or WORKDAY.INTL. The 7 digits start on Monday. 1 means it is a weekend.

Using your posted example....I've got two possible solutions, an array-formula, completed by holding CTRL and SHIFT when you press ENTER, and a regular formula. Typically, I can get a regular formula to emulate an array formula with just a little more effort (but not quite in this case)
Array-formula entered in L2 and copied across
Code:
``=IFERROR(SMALL(IF(ISNUMBER(MATCH(\$A\$2:\$J\$2,{1;2},0)),\$A\$1:\$J\$1),COLUMNS(\$A:A)),"")``

Regular formula:
Code:
``````=IFERROR(SMALL(INDEX(ISNUMBER(MATCH(\$A\$2:\$J\$2,{1;2},0))*\$A\$1:\$J\$1,0),COLUMNS(\$A:A)+
10-SUM(COUNTIF(\$A\$2:\$J\$2,{1,2}))),"")``````

Is that something you can work with?
