Is there a way of having a cell location returned. I am trying to check down a failry long list of entries and I need to know which row the item appears in.

For example... Data to be searched "ROBB"
A
1 EVANS
2 PETERS
3 ANDREWS
4 ROBB
5 MORGAN

I am looking to get something to report the data was found on row 4 or A4.
Thanks

Which Excel functions can ignore hidden rows?
The SUBTOTAL and AGGREGATE functions ignore hidden rows. AGGREGATE can also exclude error cells and more.
Hi:

=MATCH("ROBB",A1:A6,0)

for the '4',

=ADDRESS(MATCH("ROBB",A1:A6,0),1,4,1)

for 'A4'

=MATCH("ROBB",Range)

where Range refers to the range housing names, will return the location/position of the lookup value.

=ADDRESS(MATCH("ROBB",Range),COLUMN(Range))

will return the address of the lookup value.
