# IF OR CONTAINS

Options
✭✭

Hello,

I need help with a formula that tells me if the cell contains any of the following words in the cell: "Design", "Discovery" or "Contract"

If it contains any or all of the words in the cell, return "yes", if not, then "no"

So far what I've tried is not working. Thank you!

Hi @ss1992

I hope you're well and safe!

Try something like this.

=IF(OR(CONTAINS("Design", Column@row), CONTAINS("Discovery", Column@row), CONTAINS("Contract", Column@row)), "Yes", "No")

Did that work/help?

I hope that helps!

Be safe, and have a fantastic weekend!

Hi ss1992

As per your condition, you can use this formula it helps you.

=IF(Column@row = "Design", "Yes", IF(Column@row = "Discovery", "Yes", IF(Column@row = "Contract", "Yes", "No")))

Thanks
