I have to change the name as per the group in 'Type' column. it is working fine if it is represented as single name, but not with multiple names.

Eg., For Apple, Orange, Watermelon, it should come as Medium, Soft

Formula used in 'Type' Column -

=IF(OR([@Names]="Orange",[@Names]="Watermelon",[@Names]="Banana"),"Soft",IF([@Names]="Apple","Medium",
IF([@Names]="Pineapple","Hard",
"Check Names")))

NamesType
OrangeSoft
PineappleHard
Apple, Orange, WatermelonCheck Names
OrangeSoft
BananaSoft
Watermelon, PineappleCheck Names

<colgroup><col><col></colgroup><tbody>
</tbody>

Does the VLOOKUP table have to be sorted?
No! when you are using an exact match, the VLOOKUP table can be in any order. Best-selling items at the top is actually the best.

i will be taking dump from sharepoint and which has fruit names which are true or false. With your help i used textjoin to concatenate the 'Names' column.

Problem here is everytime i refresh the dump, data keeps varying and also i will be creating some more validations and from this sheet pivot will be called.:(

is there any other which will help without having a seperate table

I will show you a simple example which can tell you whether text in one cell contains something or not:

IF(countif([@Names],"*Apple*")>0,"Medium"

if
[@Names] contains "apple", COUNTIF returns 1, otherwise COUNTIF returns 0.

Thank you Very much, it solves the problem.

Instead of 'medium, soft, soft' can be get as 'medium, soft' without duplicating the type. :confused:

To get concatenated names, Textjoin is still need.
