Hi guys,

Customer Info
Cell Formulas
RangeFormula
B4B4=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("Customer 1",B3)),"REMINDER: Ship on our account with 2-day shipping","")

I have a set of cells that I've shown above for reference. The first lists what customer's equipment I am currently working on. The second is on a later sheet, and if it is "Customer 1" in my customer cell, it placed a note to remind me they have specific shipping instructions.

I now have a second customer that is requesting something specific, and I would like to change this into something like an OR function, that says "if Customer 1, note 1. if Customer 2, note 2." But I cannot seem to get an OR function to work this way, I keep getting errors. Either I'm misunderstanding how OR functions should be written, or their purpose in general. Help?

How about
Excel Formula:
``=IF(B3="Customer 1","REMINDER: Ship on our account with 2-day shipping",IF(B3="Customer 2","What do you want to say?",""))``

That works great! Written much cleaner than my original as well, thank you!
