Hello all first time posting here but have visited and learned a lot.

I have the following situation I'm trying to figure out and I'm completely stuck on how to return true via a 3 criteria match.

Lets say I have 2 Rows and 3 Columns:

995 LLC 0
996 LLL 1

If the inquiry entered matches the above data return true, however it must match via the row, ex: 995 LLC and 0 return true, else false.

Thanks for this thread, I have been trying to figure out how to accomplish something very similar I actually created 4 checkboxes, and linked them to 4 different cells for the True, False return and then came up with this. =IF(COUNTIF(L1:L4,"TRUE")<=1,IF(L1=TRUE,"Hand Line",IF(L2=TRUE,"PAINT",IF(L3=TRUE,"Long Line",IF(L4=TRUE,"EPOXY","")))),"Chose only one") It looks to see if you checked more than one box first, then puts the Value of the one "TRUE" that it matched. because of the COUNTIF.... thanks again
