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

How can you turn a range sideways?
Copy the range. Select a blank cell. Right-click, Paste Special, then choose Transpose.

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"))

try this instead

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