excel formula: Formula in column B (cell B1, B2, …) must check if a word from C1:C4 is used in A1 and return a corresponding value from D1:D4.
In result, the column B should look like below. This is an example of input data and results in the column B.
|Go 2 steps||M||Jump||J|
|Go 5 steps||M|
I have done that some time ago using INDEX, MATCH AND VLOOKUP or HLOOKUP but can’t find it any-more. I remember that it took me long time to make it work. If a cell in column A is empty, corresponding cell in column B stays clear.
You can use the
LOOKUP() function to accomplish the desired output in column
• Formula used in cell
And Fill Down for the rest of the cells.
