Hi,

At the moment, a column is populated by:

=IF(ISERROR(MATCH($C5,PriceTable!$F$1:$F$9,0)),"Grad","Senior")

So, if the value in column C is one of the values in range PriceTable!$F$1:$F$9, then the cell is "Senior". If not, it is "Grad".

What I would like is to introduce the third value "Trial" if the value in column C contains an asterisk.

If it does not contain an asterisk, the cell must follow the above formula.

Does anyone know if or how this could be done?

Hello, if you want it to return Trial if the only thing in Column C is an * the try:

=IF(C5="*","Trial",IF(ISERROR(MATCH($C5,PriceTable!$F$1:$F$9,0)),"Grad","Senior"))

Side note: searching for "*" will be interpreted as a wildcard search. You must add a tilda before the asterisk.

My formula above is not limited to the cell containing only an asterisk.

Actually, the "*" isn't interpreted as a wildcard unless you are donig the search formula. If you use the formula I suggested, it will return Trial if the only thing in the cell is an *.

However, your formula will cover if there are other things in the cell besides just an *.

I only intended that as an explanation for why my formula included a tilda.
