I have a list of 300 items where the Ticket Title column has various descriptions. I have created a column which I want to do a search against each adjacent Ticket Title field (same row) for existence of "SQL", with no quotes. I want it to return a 1 for EXISTS and 0 for NOT EXISTS. can you help me form the filter statement?
Thank you!

Disregard the last post, I see what you are looking for now.

In cell O2:
=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("SQL",B2)),"1", "0")

Open in new window


Copy down.

Let me know if that is what you were looking for.
