If cell A3 contains "ABC" then enter "ABC" in cell A1.
Can someone help me do this in smartsheet?
I tried using =If(find("ABC",A3,)="ABC","ABC","X") but its not working.
find returns the position at which the string is found
OK what will confirm if there is that text .
For example Credit data ABC 145.... it needs to confirm if there is abc in the string of text.
Hi there, are you working in Excell or in Smartsheets? Smartsheets does not refer to columns by A, B, C as Excell or Google Sheets does. To reference a column you have to use its column name.
Rjudenberg's solution will work, but you have to modify it with the Smartsheet Column Names.
=If(find("ABC", [Column A Name]3)=1,"ABC","X")
I am working in smartsheet thank you both for clarifying. I actually need to change the =1 to a >0 and make sure I match the exact text. My cell was in all caps and I didnt use that the actual formula.
Thank you both
=If(find("ABC", [Column A Name]3)>0,"ABC","X")
This should work You just need to replace the Column A Name with your own column name.
Thank you Smartsheet Community! I love you!
