Is there only 3 columns? If so try this formula in D2

=CHOOSE(COUNTIF(A2:C2,"Chase")+1,"","Called Twice","Called Once","Never Chased")

OK, perhaps you have some leading/trailing spaces - you could use wildcards like this:

=CHOOSE(COUNTIF(A2:C2,"*Chase*")+1,"","Called Twice","Called Once","Never Called")

Is that better?

regards, barry
