trying to adapt https://www.get-digital-help.com/match-two-criteria-and-return-multiple-rows-in-excel/ to work for me. my version of the formula is:

=INDEX($AK$7:$AK$15, SMALL(IF(COUNTIF($AG$5,$AJ$7:$AJ$15)*COUNTIF($AG$6,$AJ$7:$AJ$15)*COUNTIF($AG$7,$AJ$7:$AJ$15), ROW($AJ$7:$AL$15)-MIN(ROW($AJ$7:$AL$15))+1), ROW(A7)), COLUMN(A7))

so, I had the rows at the end wrong and my countif around the wrong way. why in these formulas does the countif layout differ to the normal coumtif? In this context, the criteria is placed before the range.

the fix above works perfectly; thank you. can it be further tweaked to list only those who did not have hours? for example, say eric fan and john sands had no hours this week. how would I adjust the formula to return only those two names?

I have just tried to add in another countif expression looking for null (blank) hours but it seems to skip the 4th argument, any ideas?

You are welcome - thanks for the reply. Just FYI, your formula also had the Countif's requiring an AND condition (Countif1*Countif2*Countif3) whereas it should be an OR condition (Countif1+Countif2+Countif3).

As for your new question, assuming that "A/L" in col AL indicates no hours this week, the formula can be adjusted as below.
