I am trying to do a multiple seach. The below works but I have tried various options using OR.... Any ideas would be appreaciated.

=IF(SEARCH("MGT",$G8),"TRUE","FALSE")

I have tried

=IF(OR(SEARCH("MGT",$G8),"TRUE","FALSE"),(SEARCH("TL",$G8),"TRUE","FALSE")

AHHHH

Any help greatly appreciated

Kind Regards

So you just want to know if a particular cell contains certain words? Perhaps:

=SUM(COUNTIF($G8,{"*MGT*","*TL*"}))>0
