Overview
Filter and Extract Data (formerly Multiple VLOOKUP Matches) for Google Sheets™ is an advanced alternative to the VLOOKUP and INDEX & MATCH functions. The add-on doesn't simply fetch a record for a criterion as the function does. It returns multiple matches based on multiple conditions. What's more, you can change the criteria on the go and preview the new result before pasting it to your spreadsheet. 

The drill is quick and easy and takes ONLY 3 STEPS: 

  1. pick the table you want to process
  2. set as many conditions as you need
  3. specify if you want to get all or only a number of matches

The add-on then scans your data and builds a new dataset in a place of your choice based on your requirements. 

SET CONDITIONS ON THE FLY

With the intuitive interface of the tool, there's no need to learn how to properly enter dates and time in Google Sheets™ anymore. Built-in operators will help you set your criteria on the fly. They adapt to your spreadsheet locale so you could enter dates and time as you do in daily life. The add-on will scan your data for exact or partial matches, compare values, or find records belonging to a certain period of time. 

SEARCH IN ALL DIRECTIONS

While the standard VLOOKUP cannot look at its left, our tool retrieves records from all directions. Simply select those columns you want to see in the resulting table. At your option, Filter and Extract Data will present everything as pure values or as the QUERY formula that you'll be able to use and edit later.

The add-on also serves as a standard FILTER REPLACEMENT. Instead of jumping from column to column creating conditions, you can arrange everything within one window. Our tool will find all matches and copy them outside of your table without modifying it.

WHAT'S NEW:
***** V1.6 (16 November 2023) *****
Fixed: 
- Couldn't insert formulas to the sheet different from the source sheet.

- Processed data with formulas incorrectly for 'is error' and 'is not error' arguments.
- UX fixes.

***** V1.5 (23 December 2022) *****
Improved:
- It's now possible to copy-paste a list of words into the add-on so they turn to multiple conditions.
- Text operators (starts/ends with, contains/ doesn't contain) now recognize cell references so you could refer to cell values instead of entering them directly to the add-on.

Fixed:
- The add-on couldn't paste data into the file without a set time zone.

***** V1.4 (18 October 2021) *****
Fixed:

- Fields of the 'is between' criteria couldn't accept formulas in some cases.

★ New features ★
- 2 new operators added. You can now look for cells that 'start with' or 'end with' particular characters or strings.
Improved:
- If there are no matches to your conditions, the preview field will say 'No matches found' instead of remaining completely empty.

Fixed:
- The formula missed the final argument making headers merge with data from the 1st row.
- The formula didn't return results for 'Date time' cells if conditions were built for dates only.
- The formula didn't work with big ranges that contained column BY.
- Errored if your 'Data validation' rules prevented the tool from displaying the result.
- Didn't work if you run it from a Chart sheet.

***** V1.2 *****

★ New features ★
- The add-on checks and warns you if the destination range for the resulting formula contains data.

Improved:

- Keyboard navigation: the focus is added to all icons and options in the drop-down lists.

Fixed:
- The add-on didn't accept ranges from sheets with spaces and quotes in their names.
- New columns added with the add-on running didn't appear in the tool.
- The error appeared after changing the source range and trying to preview the result right away.
- The preview didn't work if the last column in the table contained all number formats but Automatic.

This was the first time paying for this service and I was very happy with the customer support even When I messed up and purchased it on the wrong account, they quickly got back to me and helped me merge my accounts, and I will definitely think of recommending this product to my co-workers because It saved me so much time on making formulas. Amazing app and will truly revolutionize the Google Sheets setups.

I love this tool! I have been tasked with filtering a large number of spreadsheets and this tool turned a 10 min (per sheet) job into a 1 min job! The only thing that would help even more is if I could save the lookup criteria so I wouldn't have to type it in for each sheet. But all in all, this is an incredibly helpful tool that I highly recommend.

This is not only an amazing tool that allows to you to put query formulas into your spreadsheet without having to learn that language, but the customer service is AMAZING! I was having issues with getting a particular outcome with my formula, and their team was responsive within a day or two and either had a solution within the add-on, or a great work-around to make everything work the way I needed. SUPER GREAT!

Love it. Together with the youtube tutorial it works really well. So much easier than fiddling with code until it works.

The add-on is very useful and easy. I would like to know if the effect of the add-on is still on effect when my trial period is done?

A brilliant tool that allowed me to do far more with Google Sheets than I've ever been able to before, which will save me hours of manual data entry going forwards. A big thanks to Katerina and the team too who were also unbelievably helpful and responsive with my annoying questions. Would recommend to anyone

I like the idea of this but need to pull data from one spreadsheet into a different spreadsheet. Is there anyway for the "Source range" to be a URL i.e. a range from a different spreadsheet?

Didn't work, clicked submit as other user was asked, nowhere to paste the screenshot! Will wait and see what happens. I have installed and reloaded page, then started add on and the box comes up and it is blank, I get a short "Working" box then nothing. I am logged in on a chromebook to only 1 account, I tried signing out then back in and still not working!
