I am having below formula:
=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH(@CELL("contents"),B4)),MAX($A$1:A3)+1,0)

In older versions of excel before 1902 it is working as expected but in the later versions of excel 365 @ is getting added before CELL and formula is not working in it.
I have tried to replace '@' to '' using script but it is not getting replaced. Except @ all other characters were replacing through it.

Is there any way to remove it or can we prevent excel to add it in formula?

I have found the fix for this. Below formula works for all excel 365 versions.

Excel Formula:
=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH(INDIRECT(CELL("address")),B4)),MAX($A$1:A3)+1,0)

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)
