Index-formula to ignore hidden (filtered out) cells

Hi guys,

I have the following table with a few rows of data in it:
Date submittedDriverTime spent with driverLeadershipCommunicationEnthusiasmCommentaryEnvironmental awarenessComments about driver
11/09/15Jan1-2 days55523Good driver
10/11/15Cook3-10 days51254Bad driver


My formula makes sure that in cell A5, in which I can select the driver, the Index-formula only shows data rows of the driver that is selected from a drop-down list. However, I have added a date filter to the sheet and can't get the formula to ignore the hidden rows a.k.a. the filtered rows. Any ideas on how to do this?

The formula is as follows:

{=IFERROR(INDEX(SurveyData[[#All],[Submitted]:[Comments]],SMALL(IF(SurveyData[[#All],[Driver]]=$A$5,ROW(SurveyData[[#All],[Submitted]])),ROW(1:1)),1)," ")}
