What i want to do is that when i enter a code (let's say 301) in th
cell G2, then in cells O3:O15 appear the dates corresponding to th
codes 300,301,302,303,304,305 & 306.
And if i enter 312, then in cells O3:O15 appear the dates correspondin
to the codes 307,308,309,310,311 & 312 ( taking into account that "301
that i entered in cell G2 is a part of "302+301" in cell E6)

I entered 3 formulas that have solved a part of the problem, but th
last problem is that the date corresponding to "302+301" was no
included coz it's not exactly what I entered in G2.. So could u pleas
modify my formulas or create others to solve that problem ??

Here are my formulas

In O1
=LOOKUP(9.99999999999999E+307,CHOOSE({1,2},MATCH(G2,CodeListA,0),MATCH(G2,CodeListB,0)),CHOOSE({1,2
,"CodeListA","CodeListB"))

In O2 (ctrl+shift+enter)
{=SUM(IF(ISNUMBER(MATCH(E2:E18,INDIRECT(O1),0)),1))}

In Range O3:O15 (ctrl+shift+enter)
{=IF(ISNA(\$O\$1),"",IF(ROWS(\$O\$3:O3)<=\$O\$2,INDEX(\$D\$2:\$D\$18,SMALL(IF(ISNUMBER(MATCH(\$E\$2:\$E\$18,INDIR
CT(\$O\$1),0)),ROW(\$D\$2:\$D\$18)-ROW(\$D\$2)+1),ROWS(\$O\$3:O3))),""))}

And these are the results

N O
1 Range : CodeListA Where CodeListA is the range B2:B7
2 No. of dates 7 While it has to be 9 !!
3 Dates: 17/3/2010
22/3/2010
14/5/2010
9/11/2010
28/7/2010
2/2/2010
9/2/2010

Thank yo

302+301
302+305
307+312

CodeListA refers to B\$2:B\$7
CodeListB refers to B\$10:B\$15

LookupCodes
Refers to:

=TRANSPOSE(INDIRECT(Sheet1!\$N\$2))

Use the appropriate sheet name.

G2 = some code like 301

Enter this formula in N2. This will return the name of the range that the
code number in G2 is located in.

=IF(COUNTIF(CodeListA,G2),"CodeListA",IF(COUNTIF(CodeListB,G2),"CodeListB",""))

Enter this array formula** in O2. This will return the count of records that
meet the criteria.

=IF(N2="","",SUM(--(MMULT(--(ISNUMBER(SEARCH(LookupCodes,E2:E18))),ROW(INDIRECT(N2))^0)>0)))

Enter this array formula** in N3. This will extract the dates that meet the
criteria.

=IF(N2="","",IF(ROWS(N\$3:N3)>O\$2,"",INDEX(D,SMALL(IF(MMULT(--(ISNUMBER(SEARCH(LookupCodes,E\$2:E\$18))),ROW(INDIRECT(N\$2))^0)>0,ROW(E\$2:E\$18)),ROWS(N\$3:N3)))))

Format as Date. Copy down until you get blanks.

** array formulas need to be entered using the key combination of
CTRL,SHIFT,ENTER (not just ENTER). Hold down both the CTRL key and the SHIFT
key then hit ENTER.

Tweak...
=IF(N2="","",IF(ROWS(N\$3:N3)>O\$2,"",...

Make N2 row absolute.

=IF(N\$2="","",IF(ROWS(N\$3:N3)>O\$2,"",...

Thanks so much valko for ur help .. but would u please attach an excel

i got some errors when i apply ur codes
Thank u

Hi valko,
Finally i did it
thanks so much for ur help

but i got another problem
what if i want to search in two columns and not just one ( column E
F) ?
is that possible

Thanks so much T. Valko .. That's really awesome .. But could we modif
these codes to search in columns E & F instead of Just Column E ??

what if i want to search in two columns
and not just one ( column E & F) ?

What's in column F?

Ok, you say you want to highlight the dates associated with N2.

Why isn't 10/25/2010 (or 25/10/2010) highlighted?

Yeah .. sorry i forgot to highlight it

This is getting really complicated. I hope there aren't any more changes!

The conditional formatting will work as long as there aren't duplicate dates
where one date is related to N2 and a duplicate date is not related to N2.
