The easiest way to check if a cell has a value is, in my opinion, to use the equal sign [โฆ]

The picture above shows different values in column B and a formula in column C that tries to identifies the [โฆ]

If cell contains multiple values

The array formula in cell C3 checks if text string in B3 contains all values in F2:F3.

If cell equals value from list

Regular formula Formula in cell C3: =IF(COUNTIF($E$3:$E$5,B3),"Yes","No") The COUNTIF function counts how many values in E3:E5 match cell B3, it returns [โฆ]

If cell contains text from list

The array formula in cell C3 checks if cell B3 contains at least one of the values in List (E3:E7), [โฆ]

The easiest way to check if a cell contains a specific text string is, in my opinion, the IF and [โฆ]

Use IF + COUNTIF to perform numerous conditions

The COUNTIF function allows you to construct a small IF formula that carries out plenty of logical expressions. Combining the IF [โฆ]

IF with AND function โ multiple conditions

The AND function allows you to have multiple conditions in an IF function, you can have up to 254 arguments. [โฆ]

Nested IF statements in a formula are multiple combined IF functions so more conditions and outcomes become possible. They all are [โฆ]
