We have talked that the VLOOKUP function can be used to return only a corresponding value of the first occurrence of a lookup value. And if you want to return multiple values horizontally, how to achieve it.

You can create a complex array formula based on the INDEX function, the SMALL function, the IF function, the ROW function and the COLUMN function.

=INDEX($B$2:$B$6, SMALL(IF(A$2:$A$9="excel", ROW($A$2:$A$6)-ROW($A$2)+1), COLUMN(A1)))

Type this formula into a blank cell and then press Ctrl+Alt+Enter shortcuts to change this formula as array formula. And then drag the AutoFill handle from Cell C1 to E1.
