Excel - Check a specific value within a range

December 2016


I need a formula that can check a specific value in a range of values and show the cell location for each time the value is find

Suppose Serial No is in column A1 to A20, and data range is in B1 to B20.


There are many ways of doing it
  • Highlight B1 t0 B20
  • Edit -find(or control +F).

Against find what type
  • And click findall

you will get below find dialog box

that means serial nos. are 2,5,9
  • Another way:
    • In C1 or in any empty cell in that row 1 type this formula:

  • Copy C1 down up to C20 and see what happens.
