Hello Everyone,

I am still very basic when it comes to spreadsheets and workbooks. I know how to get around them and can write very basic formulas to get things I need done. I have come across a problem that I do not know how to solve. I have a cell that can contain nothing in it or can have numerous three letter codes in it (i.e. SKT, QVW, GVD...etc, etc). These codes are used to look up narratives on another sheet. I can write a LOOKUP formula and that works great, but just for the first code. Is there another way to do the formula so that it will look at all the codes and not just the first one?
