I am looking for a specific function on excel.
I am hoping if I put a name in one cell, that I can set a different cell to recognise the name and input a specific figure.
As an example in cell c3 I put my name LUKE
I would like cell c26 to recognize cell c3 has my name in it and automatically input the number 5.
Any assistance would be very helpful
I guess that's simple IF() if you check only one specific cell, or INDEX/MATCH if you check the range
How would I go about inputting that though?
I have tried just typing IF(C3"Luke") and it just recognises as text. I have tried with = in front and it says there is a problem with the formula.???
I'd recommend to check https://support.office.com/en-us/article/if-function-69aed7c9-4e8a-4755-a9bc-aa8bbff73be2 and, even better, this template if you File->New
=IF(C3="Luke", "Correct answer", "Nope, not me")
