Come on. This has been answered several hundreds of times on this forum alone. You may also refer to any Excel resource of the past 20 years. This is always the same set of functions in all spreadsheets apps and of course this is not easy to do because no spreadsheet application can substitute a database application when it comes to ID numbers pointing to a table record. This never worked reliably in spreadsheets.

There must be a simple formula???

=IFTEXT maybe?

but im useless with codes and dont get me started on macro's! lol
Ive seen a number equivalent :-

=IF(ISNUMBER(A1);B1;"") (I think)

But couldnt get it to work right.
Can i just do this with text, find "@" as a value or somthing?

The formula is not that simple.
Attached doc (Who Has Email.ods) shows array formula in column C, and in column E a standard formula that refers to helper column D.

Standard filter would be an easier solution.
