Hi all,

I've got a file where I have multiple products and they have certain characteristics. These characteristics also have values.

I need to lookup which products only have the characteristic value of "rain" or "rain" AND "fire". If a product does not meet this criteria, the lookup should return "criteria not met".

I have no idea how to start this.

Thanks in advance!

APropertyFire
BPropertyRain
BPropertyFire
BPropertyWind
CPropertyRain

you could do this in cell D2 and copy it down to your last row
Code:
=if(isnumber(search(or(and("rain", "fire"), "rain"), C2)), A2, "criteria not met")

i did not test this because im currently running a script that makes excel unresponsive, but let me know if this worked for you.
