Multiple Supersessions to One Description

New Contributor

Hello 

 

Help needed in writing a formula that will give me the Description (column A) if I type any variation of Part # and its Supersessions (column B-F)

If A3:F9 is name as Range, formula here

could be

=IFERROR(INDEX(Range,INDEX(SUMPRODUCT((Range=H4)*ROW(Range))-ROW(Range)+1,1),1),"no such")

@Sergei Baklan Thank you so much for the quick response. This seems to solve my problem.

You are welcome, glad to help

  Purely out of curiosity to see if it can be done, I took a shot at a formula to find any text that's part of the table and return a list of outcomes.

=LET(sResult,SEARCH(H3,$B$3:$F$8)/SEARCH(H3,$B$3:$F$8)*SEQUENCE(COUNTA($A$3:$A$8)),
      TRANSPOSE(
         INDEX($A$3:$A$8,
            UNIQUE(
               AGGREGATE(15,6,sResult,SEQUENCE(COUNT(sResult)))
            )
         )
      )
   )

If so I'd avoid LET() since it's on Beta channel only

=TRANSPOSE(IFERROR(INDEX(A:A,
     FILTER(--(MMULT(--ISNUMBER(SEARCH(H3,$B$3:$F$8)),SEQUENCE(COLUMNS($B$2:$F$2),,,0))>0)*ROW($A$3:$A$8),
               MMULT(--ISNUMBER(SEARCH(H3,$B$3:$F$8)),SEQUENCE(COLUMNS($B$2:$F$2),,,0))
)),"no such"))
