I would like to know if the “Match” function can be used to search an array (such as B1:Z100), or an entire column ( such as B ) and if said column/row/array can be located on a different sheet in the same ( or different ) workbook.
may be LibreOffice Help - Calc Function MATCH answers your question:
LookupArray is the reference searched. A lookup array can be a single row or column, or part of a single row or column.
(such as B1:Z100)
B1:Z100 consists of multiple columns
an entire column ( such as B )
=> yes, column
B is a single column
located on a different sheet in the same workbook
=> yes, if the (single) array is correctly referenced
located on a different sheet in different workbook.
=> yes, if the (single) array in different workbook is correctly referenced
If any of the “yes” answers doesn’t work, I’d consider this a bug ( but it may be a bug of the documentation ;-). Of course I’ve tested all 4 answer and they are working for me using:

Hope this answer your questions
