Do you hate GETPIVOTDATA?
Prevent GETPIVOTDATA. Select inside a PivotTable. In the Analyze tab of the ribbon, open the dropown next to Options and turn it off

Try:

=IF(ROWS($A$1:A1)>COUNTIF(Sheet1!$A$1:$A$20,1),"",INDEX(Sheet1!$C$1:$C$20,SMALL(IF(Sheet1!$A$1:$A$20=1,ROW(Sheet1!$A$1:$A$20)),ROWS($A$1:A1))))

adjust ranges to suit.

confirm with CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER not just ENTER...you should see {} brackets around the formula.

Sheet2


A1: 1

which is the user-specified lookup value.

A2:

=COUNTIF(Sheet1!$A$2:$A$4,A1)

which determines the occurrence frequency of the lookup value.

A4:

=IF(ROWS($A$4:A4)<=$A$2,INDEX(Sheet1!$C$2:$C$4,SMALL(IF(Sheet1!$A$2:$A$4=$A$1,ROW(Sheet1!$A$2:$A$4)-ROW(Sheet1!$A$2)+1),ROWS($A$4:A4))),"")

which is confirmed with control+shift+enter (not with enter) then copied down.

Is this not the same thing as the one already posted? No, because:

1] It does not re-calculate the same thing many times.

2] It is robust against row insertions before the data on Sheet1. That is, it will always return the appropriate list.
