    Match name to a list

    I'd like to match names to form responses to check if my students has completed the online quiz form i made.

    Not everyone submitted in the format I wanted (first name only), so when it checks the name, it must be able to check if it is part of a name too.

    What formula should I insert into O2:O9?

    Thanks in advance

    This should work copied down:

    =IF(COUNTIF($A$2:$A$7,N2&"*"),TRUE,FALSE)

    or just this:

    =COUNTIF($A$2:$A$7,N2&"*")>0
