    =COUNTIF([Column1]:[Column1], FIND("GRC", @cell) > 0)

  • Awesome! thank you for saving me the trouble!

  • Follow up question; if I find "GRC" in the above example and wanted to automatically check a checkbox column, what would the formula be?

    Just a simple if statement inside of the checkbox. 

     

    If([Output from previous formula]1>0,1,0)
