How do I create an 'if' formula to recognize one letter in a string of letters?

What 'if' function can I make to give me a "Y" or "N" if that account card starts with "B"?

When an account code starts with the letter "B", no matter what numbers/letters follow the code, this project will be charged to the department. All other costs with all other codes will be charged elsewhere.

The account codes are all structured the same:  

A.BC.123456.7890
G.HI.098765.4321

Thanks.

"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.
