    Lightbulb Formula for Vlookup to get two same value

    Hello Everyone,
    I've a dashboard...in that first column has projects and second column has name of the employee. Some of the projects has done by same employee by various date.
    For ex. In sheet2

    Column1 Column2. Column3
    Project 1 Name1 1/8/2019
    Project 1 Name1 2/8/2019
    Project 1 Name1 4/8/2019
    Project 2 Name 2 2/8/2019
    Project 2 Name 2 5/8/2019

    I have a drop down in sheet1...if i select project1 on that...all the employee name's should be displayed on next column..like this

    A2
    Project 1

    D5
    Name1
    Name2
    Name3

    Can anyone help me to make this.
    Thanks in advance.

    i really do not understand what you want
    i do my best to test code works before i post it, but sometimes am unable to do so for some reason, and usually say so if this is the case.
    Note code snippets posted are just that and do not include error handling that is required in real world applications, but avoid On Error Resume Next

    dim all variables as required as often i have done so elsewhere in my code but only posted the relevant part

    come back and mark your original post as resolved if your problem is fixed

    Re: Formula for Vlookup to get two same value

    Hi Westconn
    Actually In my Dasboard, some project has done by the Same person but different Task (Task is not in Default Letters). I want to fetch the list of person who all are working in the Specific Project.

    Please see the sample.
    Sample.zip

    Thanks

    Re: Formula for Vlookup to get two same value

    you can test if this works for you
    Code:
    Set mn = Sheets("main")
    fname = ThisWorkbook.FullName
    Set cn = CreateObject("ADODB.connection")
    Set rs = CreateObject("adodb.recordset")
    With cn
        .Provider = "microsoft.ace.oledb.12.0;data source=" & fname & ";" & _
        "Extended properties='Excel 12.0; header  = yes;imex=1'"
        .Open
    End With
    Sql = "select task,responsible  from [dashboard$] where project  = '" & mn.Range("c5") & "';"
    cn.Execute
    rs.Open Sql, cn ', adOpenStatic, adLockReadOnly
    rs.movefirst
    mn.Range("d13").CopyFromRecordset (rs)
    rs.Close
    cn.Close
    currently this is set to read the project from c5 and populate the range below D12:E12
    if the code is in someother workbook, the workbook objects will need to be modified to suit
    appears to work correctly without error

    Re: Formula for Vlookup to get two same value

    i changed cell C5 to project 3 and got the result as you displayed above

    to get the name in first column, change the select to
    Code:
    Sql = "select responsible, task  from [dashboard$] where project  = '" & mn.Range("c5") & "';"
    i do my best to test code works before i post it, but sometimes am unable to do so for some reason, and usually say so if this is the case.

    Code:
    Sql = "select responsible, task, end date  from [dashboard$] where project  = '" & mn.Range("c5") & "';"

    On this line

    Code:
    rs.Open Sql, cn ', adOpenStatic, adLockReadOnly

    Code:
    Sql = "select responsible, task, [end date]  from [dashboard$] where project  = '" & mn.Range("c5") & "';"
    tested OK, but you may need to format the date cells
