I am sure that there is a way to do this but it is not clear to me how...

I am using an IF statement. I would like the logical_test parameter to evaluate a strings last character.

EXAMPLE:

=IF(A1 end with a "T","String 1","String 2")

In case there are any extraneous spaces add the end of your string, you may want to use the Trim function to remove them, and then compare the actual last character:

=IF(RIGHT(TRIM(A1),1)="T","String 1","String 2")
