Hi,

 

I have a large data set, which the name differs slightly. Is there a way i can match the two.

 

Example match: 

State Street Australia Ltd ACF EQT ATF Alpha Global Opportunities Fund

Alpha Global Opportunities Fund

 

Thank you for your assistance.

Could you provide few more sample data.  

Looking at your example a  following function should do the job. 

=ISNUMBER(FIND(B2,A2))

A2 = State Street Australia Ltd ACF EQT ATF Alpha Global Opportunities Fund

B2 = Alpha Global Opportunities Fund
