Heyas,

I have following excel formula:

=IF(COUNTIF($C30:$C7277,Sheet1!D2) =0,"No Match ", Sheet1!D2)

I would like to add a string to the parameter 'value if false' eg. =IF(COUNTIF($C30:$C7277,Sheet1!D2) =0,"No Match ", "Match" Sheet1!D2) This gives me a formatting error.

How would I go about correcting this?

Thank you.

Hi
You don't need th last parameter...try
=IF(COUNTIF($C30:$C7277,Sheet1!D2) =0,"No Match ", "Match")

Hi xtermie,

The idea is for me to show the word 'Match' and the matching value alongside it.

Thank you.

Try it like this....

=IF(COUNTIF($C30:$C7277,Sheet1!D2),"Match "& Sheet1!D2,"No Match")
