return multiple rows of data based on criteria

Hi!

A1 = 3/1/06
B1 = 3/15/06
C1 = some name

Assuming th names are in column A.

=INDEX('data entry'!\$A\$3:\$U\$34,SMALL(IF(('data
entry'!\$A\$3:\$A\$34=\$C\$1)*('data entry'!\$C\$3:\$C\$34=\$A\$1)*('data
entry'!\$C\$3:\$C\$34<=\$B\$1),ROW(\$1:\$32)),ROW(1:1)),CO LUMNS(\$A:A))

What does the asterisk in the formula do?

It's the multiplication operator. The (now) 3 arrays are multiplied
together:

(A3:A34=C1)*(C3:C34=A1)*(C3:C34<=B1)

For a deluxe explanation of how this formula works, see this

That worked great. Thx. Couple of more questions. If I were to add an
additional element into the equation, for instance, employee name in
between
certain dates, how would the formula look. Also, What does the asterisk
in
the formula do?

Hi!

One way:

Use 2 cells to hold the date criteria:

A1 = 3/1/06
B1 = 3/15/06

Array entered:

=INDEX('data entry'!\$A\$3:\$U\$34,SMALL(IF(('data
entry'!\$C\$3:\$C\$34=\$A\$1)*('data
entry'!\$C\$3:\$C\$34<=\$B\$1),ROW(\$1:\$32)),ROW(1:1)),CO LUMNS(\$A:A))

Copy across then down.

It'll start extracting from column A (name).

I have two sheets. Sheet1 has multiple lines of data. Based on
criteria
chosen in sheet2, I need to display in sheet2 all of the rows of
data that
match the criteria. I'm having trouble with multiple criteria
(i.e. for
name1, I want all matching rows of data in a certain timeframe.
Not all
data
in ColA is are same name and will not be in any particular order.

Sheet1
A B C D E F G H I
Bryan D Smith 2/1/06 1 2 2 6 6 1
Bryan D Jones 3/1/06 2 1 3 4 2 1
Bryan D Smith 3/5/06 1 1 1 1 1 1

Sheet 2 would return based on user selecting between dates of
3/1/06 &
3/15/06
Bryan D Jones 3/1/06 2 1 3 4 2 1
Bryan D Smith 3/5/06 1 1 1 1 1 1

I can get it to return all of the items for that match in column A
but how
do I for certain dates?

Here is my formula that I'm using to get all rows that match

{=INDEX('data entry'!\$C\$3:\$U\$34,SMALL(IF('data
entry'!\$C\$3:\$C\$34=\$F\$5,ROW(\$1:\$32)),ROW(1:1)),3)}

Thanks in advance for any help!
