Excel - FIND function case-sensitive ignores case

0 votes

Does anybody know why this example's FIND function doesn't treat cases differently? The conditional formatting command

 =OR(ISNUMBER(FIND($B$1:$B$13,A1))))

was used on my table. And because FIND is case-sensitive, the word "Rektor" in column B causes the term "Prorektor" to be coloured in column A, even though it shouldn't, or did I do it wrong?

enter image description here

Also, if anybody knows why the first cell of my array seems to stay unaffected by the formula, I'd be happy to hear it! I'm using Excel Version 2301.
