    Shorten a very long Formula

    Hi All

    I have this formula that works, but it's sooo looooong, there has to be a better way of doing it, can some-one with better knowledge shorten it. PFA. If a Macro is the better way to go then that will be fine.

    Thanks in advance

    perhaps

    =IFERROR(CHOOSE(MIN(LEN(SUBSTITUTE(K4,{"W","Y","P","O","B","G","R"},"")))+1,"ALL","TRI",IF(SUMPRODUCT(--(FREQUENCY(IFERROR(MATCH("*"&{"W","Y","P","O","B","G","R"}&"*",K4,0),""),IFERROR(MATCH("*"&{"W","Y","P","O","B","G","R"}&"*",K4,0),""))))=2,"2PR","1PR")),"NR")
