Hello,

I want to conditionally format the cells in one column (in my case) D, if the cell in the same row but in column K contains one particular word that may appear in a string of text.

I have tried variations of conditional formatting below which have NOT worked (for row 123)

=$K123="*text*"

and

=IF($K123,"*text")

Any help appreciated

y88y, Good morning.

Select D1

Try to use this formula as rule at Conditional Format
=IFERROR(FIND("*TEXT*",K1),"")

Please, tell us if it worked for you.
I hope it helps.

Hi Mazzaropi

I'm afraid that your suggestion didn't work... :(

Any other ideas?
