    Search lookup array to find lookup value contained within text string

    Hi,

    I would like to have a lookup function that searches the lookup array to see if any of the cells in the array contain the lookup value within a text string.

    I have attached an example with a better explanation of what i would like the function to do

    Many thanks,

    Alex

    Where there is a will there are many ways.
