Experts,

I am trying to identify Id's (column A) that have no status (Column B) equal to "C3".   The file is sorted by ID.  If there is an ID with no "C3" found in Column "B" I would like to put a "NO' in column "C" as indicated in rows 31 and 32.  

Can someone help me with th formula to do this.

in cell C2, type this formula
=if(B2="C3","","No")

Open in new window


Then copy and paste that formula down the c column.

What this does:
If cell B2 equals the status text "C3", then leave C3 blank.  If not, put No.

Hope this is what you want.

Rgonzo1971,

It worked perfectly except I found out the value in "W" can be "C2", "C3" or C4".    Can this  be modified to check for a value other than "C1"  instead of looking for "C3".

I am sorry I asked the wrong question, I just found out the other values could be in the column.

Either my formula or Rgonzo1971's can be easily modified.  Just replace the C3 in each with C1.
