# Using an array formula to create lists from a range of data.

Hi,
I'm looking to create a list of returns/ statements from one sheet and then list them on a second sheet.
I have an array formula ( see image ) which lifts statements from a column based on criteria I set ( there are 3 criteria and I've used the array to create 3 lists - but only for the column highlighted ).

I now want, on my other sheet, to be able to choose which column that array formula lifts the statements from and then list these statements linked to the criteria assigned to the array. i.e. I want to be able to show only the statements from Rec Aut or y3 Spr or Y5 Sum etc columns on the 'other' sheet. I know I could create 21 separate sheets to do this and get it to simply copy the lists created by the array but that seems to be a very convoluted way of doing this.

I'm not very good at Excel but I hope I've explained that well enough that someone might be able to give a simple solution.

Many thanks

I suggest that you update your Account details (click your user name at the top right of the forum) so helpers always know what Excel version(s) & platform(s) you are using as the best solution often varies by version. (Don’t forget to scroll down & ‘Save’)

For example, IF you have Excel 365 then you can do this with a fairly short single formula in a single cell. With the formula shown in B5 below, the other results will automatically 'spill' down the column for the required number of rows.

Hi,
thanks for your reply. Have updated my details and believe that your answer will also work as I am using 365. Really appreciate all the answers given to me.
Thanks

Thanks for doing that.

It should do, and it has the advantage that you don't need to decide how far down to copy the formula as it is only required in that single cell.
