There are 2 screen shots.In pic 1 (Sheet name - "Emp")

Referring $D$12 (Emp. code), I have displayed Dealer codes from H23 to H32 (as shown in pic) using below array formula.

 

=IFERROR(INDEX(Main!$H$6:$H$2000,SMALL(IF($D$12=Main!$A$6:$A$2000,ROW(Main!$A$6:$A$2000)-MIN(ROW(Main!$A$6:$A$2000))+1,""),ROW(A1))),"")

 

Purpose of using this array formula is to show max 10 dealer codes at a time. If there are less dealers, say 4 dealers, then 4 codes will be displayed.

Referring pic 2 (Sheet name - "Main" in the same workbook)

Emp. code is also driven by below formula from "Main" sheet

 

=IFERROR(VLOOKUP($D5,CHOOSE({1,2},Main!$B:$B,Main!$A:$A),2,0),"")

 

My problem is if an Emp. code is blank in "Main"sheet then $D$12 shows 0 (pic 3 & pic 4).

And cell H23 to H32 still shows dealer codes calculating from H6 (from "Main" sheet) and so on..

 

I need if $D$12 is 0 or "-" or blank, H23 to H32 should be blank.  If anybody can correct or simplify my formula, please help.2.jpg1.jpg

Try this: 

=IF(OR($D$12={0,""}),"",

IFERROR(INDEX(Main!$H$6:$H$2000,AGGREGATE(15,6,

1/(Main!$A$6:$A$2000=$D$12)*(ROW(Main!$A$6:$A$2000)-5),

ROWS($1:1))),""))

hi..Great thanks for reply.. this formula is giving incorrect results.
Above formula is working good but with a slight range change. I have to take whole column range to get correct results. If taking range H6:H2000, it is calculating 1st result (Nth row) from H6. So I selected whole column to solve this.
Here it is :
=IF(OR($D$12=0,""}),"",IFERROR(INDEX(Main!$H:$H,AGGREGATE(15,6,1/(Main!$A:$A=$D$12)*ROW(Main!$A:$A),ROWS($1:1))),""))

How can I take specified range say H6:H2000 only, just in case to avoid extra calculations in excel file.

You may define dynamic ranges, like this: 

=Main!$H$6:INDEX(Main!$H6:$H1048576,

COUNTA(Main!$H$6:$H$1048576))
