    Post Data Validation with mixed numbers and a single letter

    I am looking for a simple (maybe) formula I can use in the custom Validation area. It will have up to 3 numbers an X in the middle and up to three more numbers at the end. Examples: 1X58 or 100X100 or 545X165 the numbers will be 1 to 999 with a capital X between the 2 sets of numbers. If it doesn't equal its a no go. Kind of new to this so what ever help you can give will help.
    Thank you

    Is "X" represent for any single string? Is it able to be "Y" ,"Z", "@" or any single string?

    @bebo021999,

    You need to change both of your 999's to 1000 otherwise 999X# or #X999 (where # is a stand-in for any number less than 1000) will be blocked.

    @bebo021999,

    Also another condition is required to confirm both numbers >=0, otherwise the following will accept;

    -1X-1
    1X-1

    That is a good point Haseeb! I have reworked bebo021999's formula to overcome the problem you and I found while still keeping it somewhat short...
