Correct Formula: but doesn't work

I can't understand why this formula can be working in all the cells except the ones I re-entered them in.  Even when I copy the formula from the cells where it is working and paste it, it doesn't work.

I've checked the cell formatting and it seems to be in correct; like the "number" tab is set to Text.

"Milan" is the A6 cell
