Hello all,

Please see the attached image below. I am having trouble with partial matching & joining together results.

As you can see, I have recipes 1-5 in column B, with corresponding days of the week in column A beside them. The letters in column A correspond to days of the week. For instance, when doing a partial match for symbol "m", it yields one result, and that is Recipe 1. However, there is also an "m" that corresponds with Recipe 3. What function might I use to perform a partial search with multiple results.

My follow up question is that if you are able to retrieve the appropriate recipes for each symbol, could you then join the results using a joint text function and place it in the proper location in the table. Example: Underneath symbol "m" in the table, this would yield "Recipe 1 & Recipe 3"

Thank you for your help.
