IF statement to capture text string


Hi all

In my 'Assigned To' column, I may have several contacts. One type of contacts are all called 'ID<something>' (ID1, ID2, ID3 etc). I need to write an IF statement that identifies and returns all the IDs listed in the Assigned To column. I've been using this:

=IF([Assigned To]@row = "ID", 1, 0)

but it doesn't recognise the text string "ID". Can I use * somewhere in the statement?

Many thanks
