FIND returns INVALID DATA TYPE

Options

I have a formula to look for a specific quarter in a field

Example of data in the field: "Q1;#1;#Q2;#2;#Q3;#3;#Q4;#4"

My Formula: =IF(FIND("Q2", JOIN([Estimated Quarter]@row)), 1)


If my search string is at the beginning of that field, it returns a 1 just fine, if say "Q2" is anywhere after the first character it returns #INVALID DATA TYPE.


Could the ; or # characters in my search field be causing the issue?


Thanks in advance!
