Can you please re-type your formula exactly as it appears in your workbook?  The original post has it split up in a way that doesn't make sense.  There are no [value if true] or [value if false] arguments in your IF statement.  You're also missing a closing } in your initial COUNTIF list.

Perhaps this will work:
=IF(AND(SUM(COUNTIF($AP2,{"*11*","*15*","*17*","*20*","*49*","*50*","*71*","*72*"}))>0,SUM(COUNTIF($AV2:$AZ2,{"*G0480*","*G0479*","*G0477*","*G0478*","*G0481*","*G0482*","*G0483*"}))>0),TRUE,FALSE)

replacing TRUE, FALSE with your intended actions.

Hi Glenn,

This is what the formula would look like.


=IF(AND(SUM(COUNTIF($AP2,{"*11*","*15*","*17*","*20*","*49*","*50*", "*71*", "*72*"}))>0),SUM(COUNTIF($AV2:$AZ2,{"*G0480*","*G0479*","*G0477*","*G0478*","*G0481*","*G0482*","*G0483*"}))>0),"Unable to resolve. Need InfoCode for LABOUTP. BMSD is mapped. Benefit Engine not mapped.","Please Review")

not working.

Try this:
=IF(AND(SUM(COUNTIF($AP2,{"*11*","*15*","*17*","*20*","*49*","*50*","*71*","*72*"}))>0,SUM(COUNTIF($AV2:$AZ2,{"*G0480*","*G0479*","*G0477*","*G0478*","*G0481*","*G0482*","*G0483*"}))>0),"Unable to resolve. Need InfoCode for LABOUTP. BMSD is mapped. Benefit Engine not mapped.","Please Review")

You had an extra close paranthesis after the ">0" test.
