HAS function - searching in more than one other sheet.

Hi there, I need some help please.

What I'm trying to do: I'd like a box to be checked in sheet 1 if the project name is found in either sheet 2 or sheet 3. I have an IF/HAS formula set up that checks a box if the project name is found in sheet 2. I'm not sure how to add in the search for sheet 3.

Here's my current formula. How can I also have it search in another sheet for the project name?

Thanks in advance!

    Hi @Beth Fantozzi 1 -

    As Paul recommended, I would try to incorporate an OR function into your formula. Therefore, the formula would look following (you will just need to plug in the actual sheet references and instead of "Project A" the actual project name in your row):

    =IF(OR(HAS([Project Name Sheet 1]:[Project Name Sheet 1], "Project A"), HAS([Project Name Sheet 2]:[Project Name Sheet 2], "Project A")), true, false)
