I found a proposed solution on Stack, but I can't get it to work.

Starting formula:

=IF(G3<>""; JOIN(CHAR(10); FILTER(ARRAYFORMULA(Sheet1!B1:B &" "&
                                               Sheet1!C1:C &" "&
                                               Sheet1!D1:D); Sheet1!A1:A=G3));)

I modified to match my Sheet's info, but I can't get to work.

I'm getting Filter range size errors:
--FILTER has mismatched range sizes.
--Expected row count: 1000. column count: 1.
--Actual row count: 1. column count: 1.

What I have noticed:

  • my formula refuses to maintain the ";" and autochanges them to ","
  • I have the added AND(), rather than a simple "="

My formula:

JOIN(CHAR(10), FILTER(ARRAYFORMULA('Drive-Times'!A$3:A &"-"&

my sample Sheet

My problem cell is highlighted in Green: compilations!A4

Your setup of the formula is incorrect. FILTER can take any number of comma-separated arguments; it doesn't need the AND grouping. In addition, AND does not work within ArrayFormula anyway (and you didn't need ArrayFormula here, because FILTER is its own built-in array formula.

Try this:

=IF(B4<>"", JOIN(CHAR(10), FILTER('Drive-Times'!A$3:A & "-" & 'Drive-Times'!B$3:B, 'Drive-Times'!C$3:C>=B4, 'Drive-Times'!C$3:C<B5)),)

The use of semicolons in your template formula means that this person has a sheet that is set to a locale that uses semicolons in place of commas. Your sheet locale uses commas.


=IF(B4<>"", IFERROR(JOIN(CHAR(10), FILTER('Drive-Times'!A$3:A & "-" & 'Drive-Times'!B$3:B, 'Drive-Times'!C$3:C>=B4, 'Drive-Times'!C$3:C<B5)),"NONE"),)

  • It works great on my original as well! Thank you! Is there a way to mod it to return something else if no matches are found (eg. a blank "", or "NONE", or "n/a"? Commented Apr 20, 2021 at 0:18
