In and formula, how I say: if the 4th character from the left of whatever is in column A is an "R", put the word "Radius" in the cell.  Formula is going in same row column E.

The false side of the statement is if the 4th character is a "S" put "Square" in the cell.
If neither put a blank.

I am terrible with if statements..
