    Lookup not working with wildcard?

    Hi i have the below formula which does not work when trying to add wildcard lookup. Trying to make the lookup "Life Stages" a wildcard like this "*life*" is not working.

    =IFERROR(LOOKUP(2,1/((Billed2!B:B=272)*(Billed2!A:A=C20*1)),Billed2!D:D),0)+IFERROR(LOOKUP(2,1/(('Ohio Current month spend'!A:A="*Life*")*('Ohio Current month spend'!B:B=C20*1)),'Ohio Current month spend'!C:C),0)*1.15

    Try replacing this:

    'Ohio Current month spend'!A:A="*Life*"

    With this:

    SEARCH("Life",'Ohio Current month spend'!A:A)

    On a side note...

    You should avoid using entire columns as range references in this formula. Use smaller specific ranges.
