I have a maintenance tracker in Google Sheets for lighting fixtures. One column is a type of fixture "B", the column adjacent is the problem "C". I'd like to find specific fixtures by name and copy the adjacent data into a different sheet. Basically, I need to find a specific cell and populate a different cell with adjacent data of that cell.


1 Answer 1

  • try simple VLOOKUP with exact and partial matches and outputting 1st and 2nd adjacent cells

     {REGEXEXTRACT(Maintenance!B8:B, TEXTJOIN("|", 1, B2:B)), Maintenance!C8:D}, 
     {2, 3}, 0)))
