I have following sample data and want to auto filter them based on `status`

condition `Complete`

using formula only. I know how to filter using `array formula`

and `VBA`

custom function. Right now I am filtering it using following array formula. Due to some limitation, I want to ignore `VBA`

and `array`

formula. Is there any function combination to achieve it as non-array formula?

```
{=IFERROR(INDEX($B$4:$E$13,SMALL(IF($E$4:$E$13="Complete",ROW($E$4:$E$13)-ROW($E$3)),ROW(1:1)),COLUMN(A$1)),"")}
```

============================= ** Sample Data** =================================

```
ID User Task Status
----------------------------------------------
Emp-001 Harun Prepare Document Complete
Emp-002 Rahim Print Complete
Emp-003 Karim Binding Progress
Emp-004 Jadhu Packaging Complete
Emp-005 Madhu Prepare Document Hold
Emp-006 Rahima Print Progress
Emp-007 Shila Binding Hold
Emp-008 Kaniz Packaging Complete
Emp-009 Jamila Prepare Document Progress
Emp-010 Rina Print Complete
```

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Use the following formula in `G3`

cell then drag and drop to down and right as needed. Hope this will help you.

```
=IFERROR(INDEX($B$3:$E$12,SMALL(INDEX(ROW($A$1:$A$10)-($E$3:$E$12<>"Complete")*(1E+99)*-1,, ),ROW(1:1)),COLUMN(A$1)),"")
```

### Answer：

In **K4** enter:

```
=MATCH("Complete",E:E,0)
```

In **K5** enter:

```
=IFERROR(MATCH("complete",INDEX(E:E,K4+1):INDEX(E:E,9999),0)+K4,"")
```

and copy downward. Column **K** defines the rows of interest.

In **G4** enter:

```
=IFERROR(INDEX(B:B,$K4),"")
```

copy this both across and downward:
