From: Vibeke on 16 Apr 2010 03:10 I have 4 columns (C to F) I need to search row by row for a particular word. If the word is found in a row, I need to return 1 in Column G or 0 if not found. I've tried various iterations of IF\SEARCH\MATCH and so on. The four columns contain address lines, i.e. a mixture of text and numbers and the word can appear in any of the columns, at any place in the string. I'd prefer if it weren't case sensitive but it's not imperative. Many thanks in anticipation! From: Jacob Skaria on 16 Apr 2010 03:22 Try the below =IF(COUNTIF(C4:F4,"*findword*"),1,0) 'with the query word in cell A1 =IF(COUNTIF(C4:F4,"*" & A1 & "*"),1,0) -- Jacob (MVP - Excel) "Vibeke" wrote: > I have 4 columns (C to F) I need to search row by row for a particular word. > If the word is found in a row, I need to return 1 in Column G or 0 if not > found.
