INDEX/MATCH when the MATCH is a multi-select drop down column.

Hello! I have set up an Index/Match for the Secondary ID to be matched to the Sites Under Consideration. This works for the rows where there is only 1 selection in the Sites Under Consideration column. It gives a #No Match error for the rows with multiple Sites selected. I would like it to work and list all the secondary ids for each site(Key ID). Any help figuring this out is appreciated!

    You would need a JOIN/COLLECT instead.

    =JOIN(COLLECT({Secondary ID}, {KEY ID}, HAS([Sites Under Consideration]@row, @cell)), CHAR(10))

    If that doesn't work right off. You may need to switch around the HAS function. I can never remember off the top of my head which way it needs to go for this one.

    HAS(@cell, [Sites Under Consideration]@row)
