I have a spreadsheet that contains a part number in column A and the part description in column B.  I need a way to filter out all the part descriptions that contain "ss" in their description.  Most times this is at the end of the description, but not always.  Once it finds the cell with this string, it needs to have the entire row copied to a different sheet.  Or you can have it put something in column C that would designate that it had this string so that later I could filter by column C only.

I am attaching a small sample of the data I have.

=IF(ISERROR(SEARCH("SS",B2)),"NOT SS","IS SS")
