If statement returning "SPILL" error

Copper Contributor

I am using an IF statement to find the word "consulting" in a column of a table.  I am receiving the #SPILL! error but cannot figure out why.  Here is the formula:


=IF(ISNUMBER(FIND("consulting",LOWER([Content.AD'[Product Name']]))),TRUE,FALSE)

In Excel in Microsoft 365 or Office 2021, the formula will return an array of TRUE/FALSE values the same size as [Content.AD'[Product Name']] (are those apostrophes in the right place?)

If that was not your intention, please explain what the formula should do.

I do want it to display TRUE/FALSE. I have corrected the apostrophe to the below, but now i get a different error regarding apostrophe's and formulas.

=IF(ISNUMBER(FIND("consulting",LOWER('[Content.AD[Product Name]']))),TRUE,FALSE)


Assuming that you're referring to a column in a table, simply remove the apostrophes.
