Use the MATCH function. For example:

=IF(ISERROR(MATCH("happyexchange",A:A,0)),"No Match","Match")

You want to get the rest of the data when you find a match of the name? You can use a VLOOKUP() function to do that but without more information all I can do right now is show you an article about the use of this function:
