Look up and search String in Text (Excel)

Rayne asked
Last Modified: 2012-06-21
Hello All,

I have a question. There is column (H) that has a list of possible class types. There is a table – where column C has a string text. I need a formula in column D that basically looks up the column C values and sees if it contains any strings from the Class Index (H column). If it does, then it simply outputs the matched class type for that row in column D.

Thank you
