    Using wildcards in forumla

    Greetings

    Does any one know how to wild card the 3's in "3/0/3/0" for the following formula?

    =IF(A1="3/0/3/0",0,"")

    So you want 0 if you have the pattern of n/0/n/0 where n is a digit? If so,

    =IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("?/0/?/0",A1)),0,"")
    Where there is a will there are many ways.
