Sheet1 Sheet2

What I'm trying to accomplish is...

On Sheet1, check each row for A="MSP1", B="AZNG", E=blank and F1="FULL" then check column D in Sheet1 against column C in Sheet2.

If there is a partial match, such as in the example "V210363" and "AZNG V210363" then count it as 1 for each entry that fits this criteria.

Note, it's not an exact match as the number is preceded by a 4 letter string and a space.

  • Rajesh S, I'm confused. Why did you edit my question to ask a question completely different than what I was asking? I wasn't asking about specific cells like A1 etc that you changed, I was talking about the entire column in each row. – Mathew Bauler May 3 '18 at 10:00

Please try the function below in Sheet1. The function will return TRUE if all conditions are matched, otherwise FALSE.


The formula checks A, B, E, F columns first and if conditions fulfilled then checks if searching D in Sheet2's C will return an error or not.

  • An admin edited my question which may have caused confusion, but I'm looking for a formula that checks every row, not just one. – Mathew Bauler May 3 '18 at 10:04
  • @MathewBauler I updated the formula to look Sheet2!C2:C15 range. You can use joker characters like * and ? while make text searching. – FezzikMontoya May 4 '18 at 7:35
