Excel/Excel - If a column text value equals specified value, return full row on sheet 2



I want to look up column B on sheet 1 and if the value in any column B's cells equal a specified text e.g. "blue" then the full row of information that contains "blue" in column B will be returned on sheet 2?



Place this formula in cell A1 of Sheet2:


This will return the value to the left of the word "blue" (whatever is in column A).

Copy the above formula from cell A1 to cell Z1.  Whatever appears to the left and right of the word "blue" on Sheet1 will also appear on Sheet2.  

The above formula only takes into consideration the data on Sheet1 is contained within the first 26 columns of Sheet1.  You can extend the range as needed.
