If(contains) Function Not Giving True Value
I am having a problem with my If(Contains) function. I cannot get it to give me the True value no matter what I try. My if true value I want it to pull is the value that is listed in the "Task" cell.
Here is a screenshot of the formula and data:
=IF(CONTAINS(2, Level@row), Task@row, "fail")
Best Answer

The contains function seems to be having an issue using a number as the reference data. I tried it with text instead of a number and the contains works. However, since you are referencing just a number, you do not need the contain function. You can write the logical expression directly. Try the formula below.
=IF(Level@row=2,Task@row,"fail")
