Add a formula to cell G4 that creates a Report ID from the date and the ID number on the ListData worksheet of the person who made the report. The excel IF function TEXT will include a TEXT function and a nested IF function with a VLOOKUP function. The logical test will verify if cell G2 is greater than 0. The value if true will include the TEXT and VLOOKUP functions: TEXT(G2,"YYYYMMDD"),"")&" "&IF(G1>0,VLOOKUP(G1,ListData!B15:C19,2) The value if false will return blank.

I need to do an IF function with text in the box then it comes up as "Loc" and if not it comes up as "-". i.e. the function should read =if(A1=SOMETHING, "Loc", "-") but I don't know what that "something" is That "something" should recognise that there's text in the relevant area. It is typed text and not numbers in the relevant area. It goes from row 171 to 899
