Column L contains text strings of various lengths. Column S has data validation that includes the following words in the dropdown menu: NEW, REVISED, DELETED.

I want to create a formula that changes the value in Column S if specific criteria are met in Column L as follows:

If the text string in column L ends with "- NEW", then the cell in Column S (in same row) autopopulates with the word "NEW".

If text string in column L does not end with "- NEW",  then the cell in Column S (in same row) autopopulates with the word "REVISED"

If cell in column L is blank, then the cell in Column S (in same row) remains blank.

Thanks!
Andrea
