Hi All,

so what I'm trying to do is to return the text in A1 to L column, but only if it eithers

a) Starts with the letter (likely most ideal solution)
b) Contain specific words

I think both options might work, however I'm not sure how to proceed.

The catch is:

1) I want to return given text only up to the point where another row starts with the letter. At that point, I would like to have new value mirrored

2)Table is irregular, meaning sometimes I would need to return same value 3x and sometimes 5x

Could you help, please?
