Hi,

In Column B  I have a text that may or may not have "MCO" in it. What formula can I use in column A, that will say if B1 has MCO, then return airport, if not blank.

For example B1 has  Andrea Kane_Ticket Refund

                     B2 has Ange/Tara Beth_ORF MCO ORF

Thanks!

This should do it:

=if(iserr(find("MCO",B1)),"","airport")
