Function that identifies text as a text and a value as a number

Hello!

Cell B1 has a code and Cell B2 has that code's description. I need a function in column A that will reference column B and say if B1 is a code then "value", if B2 is a text then "description".

For example:  B1 - 140109
                         B2 -  Aluminum Powder

then A1 should say - "value" and A2 should say "description

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can use the following formula in A1

=IF(ISNUMBER(B1),"Value","Description")

Open in new window


And drag it down it will do what you are looking for...
