    Compare column against multiple cells to find any matching critieria, return true or false

    Let's say column A1, B1, C1 contain values like ABC, DEF, GHI

    Column D:D contains a number of random three letter values.

    If it finds ANY of the criteria from A1,B1 or C1 in D:D it will return a TRUE. Otherwise if there are no matches it should return a FALSE.

    Followup question. Is there a way to have this ignore any blank cells in D:D column?

    What do you mean? Ignore for what? Can you give me an example?
