You have sent me 2 great formulas how ever neither one really does what i'M looking for a formula to look at a column in excel if a word is present copy an adjacent cell and paste it some where else in the sheet. It needs to find all instances of the text and copy all adjacent cells based on the text to the new location not just the 1st one. I have attached my spread sheet to show the final results. It should copy and paste the names that correspond to the Adjacent word Ceremony to the new location.


The formula I created works exactly as your spreadsheet picture shows (note, I only see an image of the spreadsheet and not the actual spreadsheet).

Please email your spreadsheet to Lotus@swbell.net.  I will add the formula and email it back to you.
