I've got Table 1 with tracking numbers for November. I've got Table 2 with tracking numbers and invoice numbers November. I want to have Table 1 look for its tracking # in Table 2 and return to me all invoice numbers where that tracking # appears and return those results in a single cell. I did find a TEXTJOIN formula that will pull all results in a single cell. YAY! That made me so happy until . . .

A tracking number is listed for every single fee associated with it on any given invoice so this TEXTJOIN formula is returning many invoices numbers in that one cell but only 2 of them are unique. Sometimes a tracking # can appear on 3 or more invoices depending on all the extra charges that come in for it over time. How do I get rid of those duplicates. I would like a formula that will return multiple UNIQUE results into one cell.

Also, do you know how I could do that same formula but have Table 1 find its tracking # and return to me invoice #s from two different tables? Sometimes we'll ship something in November but charges for it will come in across both November and December invoices, sometimes they'll even trickle into January/February invoices, too. See Order #8476 in Table 1 below. That tracking # is appearing on both Nov and Dec UPS invoices.

TIA for your help!!!

If your version of 365 has the FILTER function you could use something like below to return data from 1 table. My suggestion would be to put all the data into 1 table adding a date column instead of having different tables for each month.

@AhoyNC - I can't combine all the UPS data into one table for tracking/billing purposes. It's easier to keep them separate.

The formula you provided works perfectly. Now I just need to figure out how to get it to work across multiple tables. Thank you for your assistance.
