    Get Excel to insert specific text in a cell when another cell contains specific word(s)

    Does anyone of you know what kind of formula I should use if I want Excel to insert a specific text when another cell contains a specific word?

    Example:

    Cell 1
    (empty)

    Cell 2
    Production of product X

    Cell 3
    Category Z (under which production companies belong)

    So I want cell 1 to automatically be filled with the content of cell 3 when a part of the text in cell 2 matches a word I use as a reference, i.e. 'production').

    Attached is the file I intend to use it for (it's in Dutch, but the word 'vervaardiging' means 'production').

    Cell 1 from my example corresponds with cell D3 on tab 1. Cell 2 from my example corresponds with cell F3 on tab 1. Cell 3 of my example corresponds with cell N3 on tab 2.

    Hi,

    In the attached sheet, I couldn't find any value in said N3 of tab2. But anyway, copy paste the below formula in d3. See if this works.

    Fantastic! The value in N3 was text, maybe I should've mentioned that more clearly... anyway, thanks very much.
