double formula in single cell

I want to add two formulas in an OR type situation.

If a cell contains “New” or “Re”

I use this formula to detect one of the words……

=IF(ISNUMBER(FIND("NEW",C10)),"ok", "Not OK")

I guess what I am looking for is something along the lines of…..

=IF(ISNUMBER(FIND("New" or “Re” ,C10)),"ok", "Not OK")

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

=IF(OR(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("NEW",C10)),ISNUMBER(SEARCH("Re",C10))),"ok", "Not OK")

for example. I changed it to SEARCH in case you didn't want it to be case-sensitive (since you used both upper and lower case in the question!)

Try

=IF(COUNT(FIND({"New","Re"},C10)),"OK","Not OK")

Not that FIND is case-sensitive so if you don't want case sensitivity change to SEARCH, i.e.

=IF(COUNT(SEARCH({"New","Re"},C10)),"OK","Not OK")
