what I am looking is in B2 it should return error as "Term1" is not there in A2. could you please help how to do it? Thanks,

Column AColumn BResult in col B
Term1=SEARCH("Term1",A1)1
Term16=SEARCH("Term1",A2)1

<tbody>

Hi tried the above code, still result is same.

as "Term1" contains in "Term16" the formula is reading only first few characters to match the result as son as it finds.
