Hi

I would like to write a formulla which contains an speciall text. for example in bellow formulla:

A2: New 12 =if(A2="New 12",1,0)======>1

Now, I have a lot of name starting with "New" I want to now how I can extend my formulla to give me "1" for all cells starting with "New" or containing "New" in Middle:
<TABLE style="WIDTH: 59pt; BORDER-COLLAPSE: collapse" cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width=79 border=0 x:str><COLGROUP><COL style="WIDTH: 59pt; mso-width-source: userset; mso-width-alt: 2889" width=79><TBODY><TR style="HEIGHT: 14.1pt; mso-height-source: userset" height=18><TD class=xl72 style="BORDER-RIGHT: #ece9d8; BORDER-TOP: #ece9d8; BORDER-LEFT: #ece9d8; WIDTH: 59pt; BORDER-BOTTOM: #ece9d8; HEIGHT: 14.1pt; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent" width=79 height=18>New 12</TD></TR><TR style="HEIGHT: 14.1pt; mso-height-source: userset" height=18><TD class=xl72 style="BORDER-RIGHT: #ece9d8; BORDER-TOP: #ece9d8; BORDER-LEFT: #ece9d8; WIDTH: 59pt; BORDER-BOTTOM: #ece9d8; HEIGHT: 14.1pt; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent" width=79 height=18>All New 13</TD></TR><TR style="HEIGHT: 14.1pt; mso-height-source: userset" height=18><TD class=xl72 style="BORDER-RIGHT: #ece9d8; BORDER-TOP: #ece9d8; BORDER-LEFT: #ece9d8; WIDTH: 59pt; BORDER-BOTTOM: #ece9d8; HEIGHT: 14.1pt; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent" width=79 height=18>Old 11</TD></TR><TR style="HEIGHT: 14.1pt; mso-height-source: userset" height=18><TD class=xl72 style="BORDER-RIGHT: #ece9d8; BORDER-TOP: #ece9d8; BORDER-LEFT: #ece9d8; WIDTH: 59pt; BORDER-BOTTOM: #ece9d8; HEIGHT: 14.1pt; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent" width=79 height=18>Old 15</TD></TR><TR style="HEIGHT: 14.1pt; mso-height-source: userset" height=18><TD class=xl72 style="BORDER-RIGHT: #ece9d8; BORDER-TOP: #ece9d8; BORDER-LEFT: #ece9d8; WIDTH: 59pt; BORDER-BOTTOM: #ece9d8; HEIGHT: 14.1pt; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent" width=79 height=18>New 14
</TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>

I tried: =If(A2="New*",1,0) but didn't work.

I'm looking for a general answer to make me able use this rule for all formullas.

Any help is appreciated.
