Recreate an "IF" excel formula
How would you recreate this formula within Smartsheet?
=IF(LEFT(T2,4)="Uber","Ride Share",IF(LEFT(T2,4)="Lyft","Ride Share","No"))
Context: I need to know if on this row in column [Chain] if it says "Uber", notate "Ride Share". If it says "Lyft", notate "Ride Share". If it has anything else, notate "No".
T2 would be my column [Chain] in the formula.

Just replace "T" with your column name and "2" with your row number or an @row reference if the formula is referencing cells on the same row.
=IF(LEFT(Chain2,4)="Uber","Ride Share",IF(LEFT(Chain2,4)="Lyft","Ride Share","No"))
=IF(LEFT(Chain@row,4)="Uber","Ride Share",IF(LEFT(Chain@row,4)="Lyft","Ride Share","No"))
You can also group like outputs by using an OR statement.
=IF(OR(LEFT(Chain@row, 4) = "Uber", LEFT(Chain@row, 4) = "Lyft"), "Ride Share", "No")

Thanks! Interesting that I originally tried just that (the 1st one) and it came back #Unparsable. I obviously left something out.
