    Conditional formating based on text in 2 columns (but only partial text!)

    Hi All,

    I need to conditional format a whole row of data if Cell A contains/starts with A-BC and Cell B contains/starts with B-CD. If these (both) are not present then leave unhighlighted.

    I have tried the formula's below:

    =AND(A1="*A-BC*",B1="*B-CD*")
    =AND(A1="A-BC",B1="B-CD")
    =AND(A1=A-BC,B1=B-CD)

    Of which none work (which you've probably gathered!)

    any suggestions would be massively welcome.

    Cheers

    Donna
