Working on Sheet2, I can use the following formula to look up the "Sheet2.B1"th match in Sheet1, column B corresponding to Sheet1, column C:


I'd like to exclude rows from the lookup conditioned on the corresponding values in Sheet1, column A. For example, IF $Sheet1.$A$1:$A$9=0 THEN *exclude from row array*. I can achieve this by using Data > More Filters > Standard Filter..., copying the filtered rows to a new sheet, and using the formula above on it. However, I'd like to manage without duplicating any data.

Thanks in advance.

Edit: For example, I'd like to achieve the result in Sheet2_1 without having to filter and copy the data in Sheet1 to Sheet1_1.

Did not achieve result

A sample that I think does what you like.

Maybe with a pivot table it's easier and can be filtered as you like.

Thanks for your efforts, @m.a.riosv . I am not yet sure this meets my requirements, but I will continue to review it. I have edited my OP to include my own example.
