In Google Spreadsheets you can use

=TRANSPOSE( QUERY(D:H ; "select D where H='"&H11&"'" ))

So I was trying to find something similar to that for excel 2010, and found this

=INDEX($A$2:$C$7, SMALL(IF($B$9=$A$2:$A$7, ROW($A$2:$A$7)-MIN(ROW($A$2:$A$7))+1, ""), ROW(A1)),COLUMN(A1))

(it's better explained on How to return multiple values using vlookup in excel | Get Digital Help - Microsoft Excel resource)

The thing is that the forumla is super slow. It takes about 2-3 seconds per row in a document that has 300 rows... so that leaves me with ~5-10 minutes update when I change a row.

I was thinking having a dualcore 3 Ghz computer would do it fast, so I'm not sure weather it is the formula or excel all together that is slow.


Is there a better/faster solution for excel 2010? All tips are welcome! Thank you!

The following set up is faster if you return records with multiple cells...

Are you using entire columns as range references? That will certainly slow things down.

See if this helps:

Lookup when there are multiple instances of the lookup value
