# How to combine IF ISNUMBER SEARCH with AND

Hello Everyone
I need an advice from exel masters
I trying to create formula like this:
=IF(ISNUMBER(AND(SEARCH("text1";A1)),(SEARCH("text2",B1))),"text3")), but does not work
Formula says that If A1 is found to contain the text1, and B1 is found to contain the text2, then display text3

### Excel Facts

Whats the difference between CONCAT and CONCATENATE?
The newer CONCAT function can reference a range of cells. =CONCATENATE(A1,A2,A3,A4,A5) becomes =CONCAT(A1:A5)

try this

=IF(AND(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("text1",A1)),ISNUMBER(SEARCH("text2",B1))),"text3")

your original formula has a mixture of ; and , as seperator that I assume was a typo

=IF(ISNUMBER(AND(SEARCH("text1";A1)),(SEARCH("text2",B1))),"text3"))

=IF(AND(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("text1";A1));ISNUMBER(SEARCH("text2";B1)));"text3")

Formula works!
Thank you again
