Hi, cs97jjm3.

Please see below for a single cell solution. However, it would be easier to maintain of it was split into multiple cells. Let me know if you want to do this.
=IF(G2<>"SLA 1","",IF(76>TRIM(MID(M2,1,FIND("Days",M2,1)-1))*24+TRIM(MID(M2,FIND("Days",M2,1)+4,FIND("Hours",M2,1)-FIND("Days",M2,1)-4))*1,"SLA 1 Met","SLA 1 Not Met"))

Regards,
Brian.

Thanks, cs97jjm3.

Please see attached. If you have lots of SLA's then they should probably be in a normal table rather than array constants.

Assuming you have a stable format of "# days # hours", then select that column, and use Data / Data Tools / Text to Columns in the Ribbon to split.

If you do that, so that now M has the number of days and O has the number of hours, it becomes much, much easier:

=IF(M2+O2/24<3+4/24,"SLA 1 Met","SLA 1 not met")
