a1=G110581f or N110582f or 110582f
a2=pool or customer or retired or gfe
a3= N or G or O or L

in other words if a1 begins with g and a2 is pool or retired and a3 is g then statement is true.
The trick y part is also on one instatnce a1 should begin with N and the second character should not be a number 1 through 9.
When I do this is does not recongize the second character on whether there is an = or <>.

hope this gives enough info to assist.

There are several functions you should know about: text(A1), value(A1), isnumber(A1), istext(A1)

so you can do something like

=if( and(value(left(a1))="N",isnumber(value(mid(a1,2,1))=false , RESULT)

To find the second character in a string in A1 use =mid(A2,2,1)
To check if it is a number use =isnumber(value(mid(A2,2,1)))

I hope this helps to get past the part you are stuck on - not being familiar with your problem it's difficult to give you any more advice.

When I copy my bank statement into a word doc and try to edit it, it locks up for 30 seconds or so every time I press enter to move a line of print down. Should I remove and download my office 2007 again?

Hi, If it only happens with your bank statement then the problem is not with Word. Try pasting the statement into the document using the "Paste Special" option and paste as Text or other format.
Try to see if there are any hidden lines in the document.
