IF, Else, Contains Formula
Options
Hello,
I have a formula in Excel that looks for key letters at the start of string text and if the condition is met, the cell is populated.
The formula needs to be something like:
IF [column]@row contains BM as the first two letters then test 1
IF [column]@row contains RH as the first two letters then test 2
IF [column]@row contains OE as the first two letters then test 3
IF conditions not met then blank
I can write the formula for a simple if statement, but when it comes to multiple contains i get very lost. Your help would be very appreciated.
