Extract dates and adjacent value in a range using a date critera

The formulas below extract all dates where the year is 2009 and adjacent values in range B2:G33.

Array formula in B38:

=INDEX(tbl, SMALL(IF(IF(ISERROR(YEAR(tbl)=2009), 0, YEAR(tbl)=2009), ROW(tbl)-MIN(ROW(tbl))+1), ROWS(B14:$B$14)), MATCH(SMALL(IF(IF(ISERROR(YEAR(tbl)=2009), 0, YEAR(tbl)=2009), (ROW(tbl)-MIN(ROW(tbl))+1)+(COLUMN(tbl)-MIN(COLUMN(tbl))+1)/16384, ""), ROWS(B14:$B$14)), SMALL(IF(IF(ISERROR(YEAR(tbl)=2009), 0, YEAR(tbl)=2009), ROW(tbl)-MIN(ROW(tbl))+1), ROWS(B14:$B$14))+((COLUMN(tbl)-MIN(COLUMN(tbl))+1)/16384), 0)) + CTRL + SHIFT + ENTER

copied down as far as necessary.

Array formula in C38:

=INDEX(tbl, SMALL(IF(IF(ISERROR(YEAR(tbl)=2009), 0, YEAR(tbl)=2009), ROW(tbl)-MIN(ROW(tbl))+1), ROWS($B14:C$14)), MATCH(SMALL(IF(IF(ISERROR(YEAR(tbl)=2009), 0, YEAR(tbl)=2009), (ROW(tbl)-MIN(ROW(tbl))+1)+(COLUMN(tbl)-MIN(COLUMN(tbl))+1)/16384, ""), ROWS($B14:C$14))+1/16384, SMALL(IF(IF(ISERROR(YEAR(tbl)=2009), 0, YEAR(tbl)=2009), ROW(tbl)-MIN(ROW(tbl))+1), ROWS($B14:C$14))+((COLUMN(tbl)-MIN(COLUMN(tbl))+1)/16384), 0)) + CTRL + SHIFT + ENTER

copied down as far as necessary.

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

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

MATCH(lookup_value;lookup_array; [match_type])
Returns the relative position of an item in an array that matches a specified value

Returns the smallest number in a set of values. Ignores logical values and text

Checks whether a value is an error and returns TRUE or FALSE

YEAR(serial_number) returns the year of a date, an integer of the range 1900-9999

COLUMN(reference) Returns the column number of a reference
