    isnumber search match error

    Dear Experts,

    Please find here attached sample workbook, where i tried isnumber search match formula in cell G4 and H4 but it is giving #N/A error.

    In cell G2 there is description which contains year as well and from the Cell G2 description i was trying to search year and match with cell C4 Year and if it matches then the expected result would be as mentioned in Cell J4 or else the output would be of Cell K4.

    Request to you please help me.

    Many thanks and regards,

    Neilesh

    Re: isnumber search match error

    this portion returns true =ISNUMBER(SEARCH("2016",G2,1))
    this part is returning #N/A =MATCH(YEAR(C4),C4,0)
    what is it you are trying to have the match do?
    Overall, what does your data look like that you are using that formula?

    Re: isnumber search match error

    is this closer to what you are trying to get to?
    =IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("2016",G2))=YEAR(C4),ROUND(B4/E4,0),ROUND(B4*F4,0))

    EDIT: maybe better yet...
    =IF(--RIGHT(G2,4)=YEAR(C4),ROUND(B4/E4,0),ROUND(B4*F4,0))
    at least for what you showed.
