    Unhappy Display 'UNKNOWN' in a cell if the criteria doesn't match

    If I enter a 7 digit number in to A1 I want '1' to be diplayed in B1, if a 5 digit number is entered in A1 I want '2' to be displayed in B1. Any other amount of numbers or text are to display 'UNKNOWN'.

    Please help.

    Try:

    =If(Len(A1)=7,1,IF(Len(A1)=5,2,"Unknown))
    Where there is a will there are many ways.
