Hello, I need an excel formula to allow me to enter the specific name the search on it to provide a true or false result. I tried using the IF formula to say IF B2 = name, "Correct Name", "Incorrect Name".

That IF would be exactly like this:

=IF(B2="name","Correct Name","Incorrect Name")

If you put the word "name" in cell B2, this formula results in "Correct Name", othwise it results in "Incorrect Name".

Please post your second question in a thread by itself, with a relevant Subject Line.

In the future, try to use a subject line that is relevant to the contents of your post. If everyone used a generic subject line such as Excel Formula, we wouldn't be able to tell one question from another. Browse through the other threads in this forum and look at the types of subject lines that others have used.

I have edited the subject line of this thread.
