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 need a wildcard for numbers on the left side of the decimal when dealing with rounding up and down with specific criteria but focusing on the right side of the decimal only.

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 "," "))))))
