Question
Hi,
I want a formula or function which can help me to show all the respective values against one selected value.
For example:-

Column A-Column B
A - Apple
A - Amit
A - Annie
B - Boy
C - Cat

As in above list, I have a drop down list, If I select "A" from the list, All names against "A" should be pasted at any perticular location.

Assuming:

Column A - list of ABC codes
Column B - the desired values, do not have to be sorted by the way
F1 - drop down where you've selected "A" as you choice
G1 - where the first value should appear, then going down from there:

This array formula will do the work for you:
G1: =IFERROR(INDEX($B$1:$B$100, SMALL(IF($A$1:$A$100=$F$1, ROW($A$1:$A$100), ""), ROW(A1))), "")
...confirmed by pressing CTRL-SHIFT-ENTER, not just ENTER, to activate the array.  You will know the array is active because you will see curly braces { } appear around your formula.  Once your first value correctly appears, copy that cell downward to reveal the other values.
