Hello!

I have a column with numbers. Some of them have 0 as a starting digit and some don't have "0" in front. I need to identify those that don't have zero. For example, if A1 has "0", then "Option A", if there is no "0" then "Option B"

Thanks

The following formula checks if cell A1 begins with a 0.  If it does, then performs your "Option A", otherwise it performs your "Option B"

=IF(LEFT(A1)="0","Option A","Option B")
0
