Hello
Looking for excel formula that does this. There is a target substring “Rainy” that always starts at the first part of the main strings in column F. If the formula finds that target substring, it marks it as “yes” for column G.

thanks

In I6:

=IF(ISERROR(FIND("Rainy",F6)),"","Yes")

And copy down.
