As per the picture I have a spreadsheet that tracks what courses an individual has completed and if that course has a Certification attached to it. If a Training Participant has a value of "1" under a Course Name it means they completed that course and if that course has a Certification attached to it I need to have the name of the Certification (in text, with commas between each Certification) in a cell at the end of that Individuals Row. Can anyone help me with a formula to do this?
NOTE: There will be as many as 300 Individuals completing as many as 75 different courses and not all courses have certifications attached to them.

Hi Shenton,

Try the following formula:
=IF(B2=1,\$B\$1&", ","")&IF(C2=1,\$C\$1&", ","")&IF(D2=1,\$D\$1&", ","")

There is going to be a comma space (, ) at the end of the string.
To remove that use the following formula:
=LEFT(F2,LEN(F2)-2)

Or combine the 2 by replacing both F2 references from the second formula with the first formula.

Best regards,
Trowa
