Excel/use array to pull information


ref. sheet
ref. sheet  

working sheet
working sheet  
This is what I would like to do.
First let me say that sheet2 is filled using diffirent formulas. I will be using these cells to get data for whosmynurse sheet. I belive this requires th ISNA function if I am ready correctly. I am attaching what I am hopeing to fill from sheet2.

If in Tourofdutyrecord(workbook)  whosmynursedays(active sheet) sheet2(reference sheet) $C4$E85. (criteria) any one of the following “7, 7C, 7CMTG, 7MTG, 6, 6C, 6CMTG, 6MTG, NOON” in c4:e85. If criteria met then get name after (comma and space) from sheet2  column B (in same row meeting criteria i.e. if 7 in d4 then get name after  “,” from b4) and place in (active sheet) whosmynursedays  A7.  Then goto B7 using same criteria and fill whosmynurse row b7 and so on till H7 filled or no more names meeting criteria from Tourofdutyrecord sheet2 $C4$E84.
Will need the same for (TAB/SHEET) whossmynurseevening but with criteria “3, 3C, 3CMTG, 3MTG, NOON” from same array $C4 $E84.

If possible can you breakdown each step in formula so I can learn and hopefully duplicate for whosmynurseevening with the necessary modifications. I would really like to learn this part of excel and do not want to keep burdening everyone for their work.
Thank you for looking and especially for doing.

I find it quite hard to follow from the pictures on this site - mainly due to my eyesight I think - would it be possible to send me the sheet (or an example of it) to - I think that would help us both- me as I can see what you need to do, and you because it's much easier to explain the formulas in place on Excel!

I have provided first hand support since `95 for Microsoft Office majoring in Word and Excel - support for all versions from 2 onwards. I'm based in the UK, so please allow for time differences when asking me questions from other parts of the world!


My background is in the insurance industry and call centre areas, but have been called upon to provide many varied solutions.

I'm educated to UK A level standard, but as I left school some 30 years ago that is rather irrelevent - university of life has provided more of a background!
