Excel formula for searching two text in one cell and return values based on the result

0 votes

I'm looking for an Excel formula that would search two text strings (dba, BP) in a single cell and return values based on whether dba or BP was found. I used the formula below, but it only returned one value.

=IF(OR(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("dba,A25)),ISNUMBER(SEARCH("bpi",A25))),"dba","")

You can include a second IF within the first one so that it functions as though it is testing for a second case if the first case does not match.

=IF(<first case>, <first case matched> ,IF(<second case>, <second case matched>, <no matches>))

In your case,

=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("dba",A1)),"dba",IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("bpi",A1)),"bpi",""))
