mathewmunna, Good afternoon.

Will these groups of characters appears in a text at A1; A2 or they will appears isolated as xpa or spa etc at a cell?

Give us an example how they will appears.

assume i have to count xpa or xpb or spa or spb in 2 cells i e A1 & A2 no other texts i e if the cell contains xpc, xpd .... it should not count

eg:

A1=XPA
A2=XPB
RESULT A3=(1+1)*2

A1=XPB
A2=SPB
RESULT A3=(1+1)*2

A1=SPA
A2=XPC
RESULT A3=(1+0)*2

A1=SPD
A2=SPC
RESULT A3=(0+0)*2

I got a formula but very long..
=IF(A1="XPA",2,IF(A1="XPB",2,IF(A1="SPA",2,IF(A1="SPB",2,))))+IF(A2="XPA",2,IF(A2="XPB",2,IF(A2="SPA",2,IF(A2="SPB",2,))))

mathewmunna, Good morning.

Scenario:
A1 = XPA
A2 = SPB
---------------
L1 = XPA
L2 = XPB
L3 = SPA
L4 = SPB
---------------
Try to use:
A3 -->
=SUM(IFERROR(MATCH(A1,L1:L4,0),0);IFERROR(MATCH(A2,L1:L4,0),0))*2

Is this what you want?
I hope it helps.

Yes, It does Work.. But it would be better if it can check in the same cell instead of L1:L4..

i am looking for if ((B79=(SP1 or SP2 or......SP8) + B80=(SP1 or SP2 or......SP8)), multiply it with 2

Scenario:
B79 = SP1
B80 = SP8
---------------
RESULT (1 + 1) *2

Scenario:
B79 = SP1
B80 = P10
---------------
RESULT (1 + 0) *2

Scenario:
B79 = P9
B80 = P10
---------------
RESULT (0+ 0) *2

i am using exact this formula to confirm SP1 TO SP8 (i.e signal pole numbers) (other poles are named like P9, P10...)

=IF(B79="SP1",2,IF(B79="SP2",2,IF(B79="SP3",2,IF(B79="SP4",2,IF(B79="SP5",2,IF(B79="SP6",2,IF(B79="SP7",2,IF(B79="SP8",2,0))))))))+IF(B80="SP1",2,IF(B80="SP2",2,IF(B80="SP3",2,IF(B80="SP4",2,IF(B80="SP5",2,IF(B80="SP6",2,IF(B80="SP7",2,IF(B80="SP8",2,0))))))))
