Hi - I think I need an if/then formula, but I am not 100% positive.

I am creating a spreadsheet to track trainer certifications and availability.  

I need to determine if the course (column B) is one listed in their certifications (column E).  If it is, "yes" would go in column F, if it isn't, "no" would go in column F.

Once I determine how to identify if they are qualified, I will need to determine if they are available or currently booked.

Assuming the certifications are not more than 9, you can use this formula starting in F2:
=IF(ISNUMBER(FIND(B2,E2)),
“Yes”,
“No”)

Thank you very much!  That did exactly what I needed it to do. :)
