Excel Formula - certain part of string

I am trying to use a formula, that looks at a string and search for a certain word, but I want to only search after the last "-"

for example

This would return a true statement - test-test123-test-test123  as test123 is the last part of text

This would return a false statement - test-test-test123-test456 as test456 is the last part of the text

Any suggestions on how i can accomplish this ?

Something like this:

=NOT(ISERROR(FIND(B2, A2, FIND("~", SUBSTITUTE(A2, "-", "~", LEN(A2)-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(A2, "-", "")))))))

Open in new window


where your search term is in B2 and your string to be searched is in A2.
