Filter Data based on codes


I have a question on how to filter the data on multiple columns. The problem is I have one table with 25 columns, 4500 rows. I need to filter out the data based on some codes like 'XXXX', I have 25 codes to check on that table. My requirement is that which ever row has this code I need to create a new column and print that code (like if a row contains that code need to print that code in new column). The problem is that we don't know in which column these codes are there, so we need to check each record to filter out the data. Please help me out if you have any solution for this.

Thank you for taking time and helping me out.
