Hi,

I have a list of date and I am trying to write a formula that says if the line of data contains a certain word then put a yes the next column.

Is it possible to create a formula that says if A2 contains "Apple", then yes, otherwise no? I can't get this to work in a normal if formula because of the contains part.

Thanks

:biggrin:

Bring active cell back into view
Start at A1 and select to A9999 while writing a formula, you can't see A1 anymore. Press Ctrl+Backspace to bring active cell into view.

Or:

=IF(COUNTIF(A1,"*Apple*")>0,"Yes","No")

This isn't case-sensitive though (unlike FIND).

B2:

=ISNUMBER(SEARCH("Apple",A2))+0

Custom format (Format|Cells) B2 as:

[=0]"";[=1]"Yes"
