Hi, I am trying to work with VBA and writing a formula which is not working. =IF(AND(C2="STONECASTLE*", OR(V2="ON",V2="BC",V2="AB"))=TRUE,"PROSPECTUS QUALIFIED", "SUB DOC NEEDED") I am writing in Excel first and then will record macro. It keeps giving me the false value (SUB DOC NEEDED) even though both arguments of the AND formula are true. I think the problem is deriving from the * wildcard used. Please look at the highlighted column to the far right.

I have a formula that isn't quite working. Need to look in column "B" for RIGHT, LEFT, RT, LT, R, L & return a "R" or "L" in a new column. If not present, then the cell = blank. An example would be: SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA SKIN/ L EAR AND EXTRN AURIC CANAL It should return a value of "L". Left cannot be a wildcard because the word "CLEFT" can also be in column B. Here is the formula i am using - but it is returning all "R"s regardless. =IF(COUNTIFS(B1609,"Right")>0,"R",IF(COUNTIFS(B1609,"*RT*")>0,"R",IF(COUNTIFS(B1609,"Left")>0,"L",IF(COUNTIFS(B1609,"LT")>0,"L",IF(COUNTIFS(B1609,"*R *")>0,"R",IF(COUNTIFS(B1609,"*L *")>0,"L "," "))))))

Hello I'm still not able to get this to work. I trying to use VBA advanced filter. I have everything filtering and working just fine except the column with "numbers" which isn't filtering. I'm thinking is based on the criteria I've set or the name manger input I gave. For the criteria, this is what I've got for the number column: =IF(K6="","*",K6) Not sure if the wildcard * works for numbers as well or just text. The idea is I have a column with only numbers and I've created a name rang to filter based on what number I select. For the name range, this is what I've got for input: =OFFSET(Lists!$O$5,,,COUNTA(Lists!$O$5:$O$110))
