Question: I second G's question: can this be done for more than 3?

i.e.
(Instead of last name, middle, first)
customer#, cust name, appt date, appt time, venue, coordinator, assistant

A question asked in this post:
Lookup with multiple criteria and display multiple search results using excel formula, part 3

Array formula in B25:

=SMALL(IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH(Search_customer, Customer)*SEARCH(Search_cust_name, Cust_name)*SEARCH(Search_Appt_date, Appt_date)*SEARCH(Search_Appt_time, Appt_time)*SEARCH(Search_venue, Venue)*SEARCH(Search_Coordinator, Coordinator)*SEARCH(Search_Assistant, Assistant)), ROW(Customer)-MIN(ROW(Customer))+1), ROWS(B24:\$B\$24)) + CTRL + SHIFT + ENTER copied down as far as needed.

Formula in C25:

=INDEX(Customer, \$B25) + ENTER

Formula in D25:

=INDEX(Cust_name, \$B25) + ENTER

Formula in E25:

=INDEX(Appt_date, \$B25) + ENTER

Formula in F25:

=INDEX(Appt_time, \$B25) + ENTER

Formula in G25:

=INDEX(Venue, \$B25) + ENTER

Formula in H25:

=INDEX(Coordinator, \$B25) + ENTER

Formula in I25:

=INDEX(Assistant, \$B25) + ENTER

(Excel 97-2003 Workbook *.xls)

IF(logical_test;[value_if:true];[value_if_false])
Checks whether a condition is met, and returns one value if TRUE, and another value if FALSE

INDEX(array,row_num,[column_num])
Returns a value or reference of the cell at the intersection of a particular row and column, in a given range

ROW(reference) returns the rownumber of a reference

COUNT(value1;[value2])
Counts the number of cells in a range that contain numbers

SMALL(array,k) returns the k-th smallest row number in this data set.

ISNUMBER(value)
Checks whether a value is a number and returns TRUE or FALSE

SUM(number1,[number2],)
Adds all the numbers in a range of cells

SEARCH() Returns the number of the character at which a specific character or text string is first found, reading left to right (not case sensitive)

=IF(SUM(IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH(\$F\$2;First_name)*(SEARCH(\$F\$4;Last_name))*(SEARCH(\$F\$3;Middle_name)));1;0))<ROWS(\$E8:\$E\$8);"";INDEX(First_name;SMALL(IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH(\$F\$2;First_name)*(SEARCH(\$F\$4;Last_name))*(SEARCH(\$F\$3;Middle_name)));ROW(INDIRECT("1:"&ROWS(Last_name)));"");ROWS(\$E8:\$E\$8))))
