I have student data listed across multiple columns.

Column A of the data contains student names.

While each row is specific to a single student named in column A, a single student may have multiple rows of data.

For example, StudentA's name may be listed 8 times, StudentB's 12 times, StudentC's 4 times, and so on.

I want to type a student's name in F3, and return the data in A:B where the value in column A matches F3.

This is my current formula:

=IFNA(INDIRECT("A"&MATCH(F3,A:A,0)&":E"&MATCH(F3,A:A,0)-1+MATCH("MYA",INDIRECT("A"&MATCH(F3,A:A,0)&":A"),0)),"Record not found")

In this case, I was searching for data for the student MYA. I would like it so that I can filter the list for a student without having to hardcode the student's name in the formula as I did above.

Use filter(), like this:

=filter(A2:E, A2:A = F3)

See the new Solution sheet in your sample spreadsheet. There is a drop-down list in cell F3.
