Smartsheet does not have a SEARCH function.
Try this instead:
=IF(CONTAINS("text", cell), "value_to_return")

Hello @Yogi
I don't see anything wrong with the structure of the syntax.
SEARCH() is not a function within Smartsheet.
FIND() is nearly the same thing. Try replacing SEARCH with FIND("text",@cell)

Smartsheet does not have a SEARCH function.
Try this instead:
=IF(CONTAINS("text", cell), "value_to_return")

Thanks to @Paul Newcome and MichaelTCA for trying to help me,
=IF(CONTAINS("text", cell), "value_to_return")  This formula worked for me.
