# VLOOKUP with multiple values on the same row in Excel

Method 1: Return the entire row

In Excel, VLOOKUP cannot natively return multiple values from the same row. Use FILTER instead.
In this example, we'll find someone's name and company based on their email address:

Formula in G3
=FILTER(C\$3:D\$6,F3=B\$3:B\$6)
A
B
C
D
E
F

Result: Name
Result: Company

## Procedure

1. Enter =FILTER in cell G3, where you want the Name to appear.
2. Enter the Search range C\$3:D\$6, which is the data range containing the Name and the Company values.You can add the dollar sign (\$) to fix the rows, so if you drag down the formula, FILTER always refers to the same rows.
3. Enter the Condition F3=B\$3:B\$6, which filters rows of the Search range where the value in column B (Email) equals the lookup value in F3.

## Result

The final formula is: `=FILTER(C\$3:D\$6, F3=B\$3B\$6)`
FILTER returns the values in G3 and G4, which are James and Rockwell Automation.

Method 2: Only return some columns

In Excel, use nested FILTER formulas to look up multiple values from disjoint columns.
In this example, we'll find someone's first name and company based on their email address:

Formula in C3
=FILTER(FILTER(C\$3:E\$6, B9=B\$3:B\$6),{1,0,1})
A

## Procedure

1. Build the first FILTER formula:
1. Enter =FILTER in cell C9, where you want the First name to appear.
2. Enter the search range C\$3:E\$6, which is the data range containing the First name and the Company values.You can add the dollar sign (\$) to fix the rows, so if you drag down the formula, FILTER always refers to the same rows.
3. Enter the Condition B9=B\$3:B\$6, which filters rows of the search range where the value in column B (Email) equals the Lookup value in B9.
2. Build the second FILTER formula around the first FILTER formula:
1. Enter FILTER( between the = and first FILTER formula.
The formula looks like this: `=FILTER(FILTER(C\$3:E\$6, B9=B\$3:B\$6)`
2. Enter the Condition {1,0,1}, which tells FILTER to return only the first and third column (First name and Company).1,0,1 means the 1st and the 3rd column will be returned, and the 2nd will be ignored.

## Result

The final formula is: `=FILTER(FILTER(C\$3:E\$6, B9=B\$3:B\$6), {1,0,1})`
FILTER returns the values in C9 and D9, which are Ashley and Summables.
