CONTAINS Formula
Hello,
I need help with this formula =IF(CONTAINS([Invoice Number]@row, "Invoice"), "Yes", ""). It worked if the "Invoice Number" row value is only "Invoice", if value contains "Invoice xxx" something else after "Invoice" it doesn't put "Yes" in "Want Yes" Row.
I would like to put "Yes" in "Want Yes" row if the "Invoice Number" row contain the word "Invoice".
Thank you.

Hello @BonW
I know what it's like to have people add anything into the cell so you as the Smartsheet god needs a work around. You may want to use a drop down if possible to limit the variables.
Anyway, Check out this formula:
=IF(FIND(UPPER("Invoice"), UPPER([Primary Column]@row)) > 0, "Yes", "")
I took the liberty of adding an additional probability and that's if your people type "invoice" using lower case. Currently, your formula only accounts for "Invoice" with a capital "I" and formula is case sensitive.
Good luck!
